LocationEstadio Olímpico de Montjuïc, Barcelona
Participants27 from 19 countries

The former Soviet Union throwers were still dominant, now representing the Unified Team, although there was a new group of throwers. Andrey Abduvaliyev (TJK) won the gold medal with his fourth-round throw of 82.54 (270-9¾), although he had led since the second round. First round leader Igor Astapkovich, 1990 European Champion, won the silver medal, followed by Igor Nikulin in third. Omitting 1984, this was the fourth consecutive medal sweep in this event for Soviet-based hammer throwers. Abduvaliyev would win the World Championships in 1993 and 1995.
