Gold: GER Maik Bullmann
Silver: TUR Hakkı Başar
Bronze: EUN Gogi Koguashvili


Former East German [Maik Bullmann] had won the 1989-91 World titles and the 1992 Europeans, and came to Barcelona as a clear favorite. Former Soviet Pavel Potapov might have challenged him, having won the 1990-91 Europeans, but he was not selected for the Unified Team. Bullmann won the gold medal easily, as expected, defeating five opponents by a combined score of 33-1, and winning gold with a 5-0 decision over Turkey’s [Hakkı Başar]. Bronze went to the unknown Georgian selected by the Unified Team, [Gogi Koguashvili], who later won the 1993-94 World Championships and the 1995-96 Europeans.
