Ralf Schumann was the clear favorite, having won the 1990 World Championships and as the world record holder since 1987. The rapid-fire competition in 1992 was different, with three rounds of competition. Schumann led after round one with 594, and shot 195 in the semi-final round to continue to lead by three shots over Kazakhstan’s Vladimir Vokhmyanin. Four shooters went on to the final round – Schumann, Vokhmyanin, the 1988 gold medalist Afanasijs Kuzmins (LAT), and Poland’s Krzysztof Kucharczyk. All four shot 96 or 97 in the final round, but Schumann held on for the gold medal. But Kuzmins shot 97 to tie Vokhmyanin and the higher score in the final round brought him the silver medal, with Vokhmyanin placing third and Kucharczyk fourth. Schumann would dominate this event in the coming years, winning the gold again in 1996 and 2004.
