LocationEstadio Olímpico de Montjuïc, Barcelona
Participants79 from 65 countries
Olympic Record 19.75 / Joe DeLoach USA / 28 September 1988

The heavy favorite was America’s Michael Johnson, who was world ranked #1 in 1990 and 1991. He was beaten in June 1992, for the first time in 30 races, by Namibia’s Frankie Fredericks. After winning the US Olympic Trials in 19.79, he developed food poisoning after eating at a restaurant in Salamanca, Spain, and weakened by the virus, he would not survive the semi-finals in Barcelona. That left the final to be between Fredericks and Mike Marsh, who had placed second at the US Olympic Trials in 19.86. Marsh took the lead into the straight and won comfortably over Fredericks, with American Michael Bates getting the bronze medal.
