By 1992, Stefka Kostadinova was not quite as dominant as she had been in 1988. She had struggled with injuries and the last two majors meets – 1990 Europeans and 1991 Worlds – had been won by Germany’s Heike Henkel. They were the two favorites. Only five jumpers cleared 1.94 (6-4¼) while Henkel passed to 1.97 metres (6-5½), leaving six to contest that height. Romania’s Galina Astafei took the lead with a first jump clearance of 1.97 (6-5½), while Kostadinova failed her attempts and was out of the medals. Only three were still alive, Astafei, Ioamnet Quintero (CUB) with a second-jump clearance, and Henkel, who struggled, but got over on her last try. Both Henkel and Astafei succeeded at two metres, Astafei still leading as she had not yet missed. But Henkel won the gold medal with a first-jump clearance at 2.02 (6-7½), leaving Astafei in second and Quintero in third.
