The favorite was China’s Huang Zhihong, who had won the 1991 World Championships and would win again in 1993. Defending champion Nataliya Lisovskaya was back, but after placing second in the qualifying she would finish only ninth. Svetlana Krivelyova (EUN/RUS) took the lead in round one of the final with 20.34 (66-8¾). But Huang moved ahead with 20.47 (67-2) in round three, only to see Krivelyova take back the lead with 20.89 (68-6½) in the fifth round and improve that to 21.06 (69-1¼) in the final round. Krivelyova had been bronze medalist at the 1991 World Championships, and would improve that to a silver in 1993, but she had a very long career, and would finally win the Worlds in 2003.
