Olympic Record 72.30 / Martina Hellmann GDR / 29 September 1988

Ilke Wyludda (GER) was slightly favored. She had won the 1990 European Championships and was dominant from 1988-91, when she was upset at the 1991 World Championships by Bulgaria’s Tsvetanka Khristova. Wyludda would never factor and finished only ninth at Barcelona. Cuba’s Maritza Martén, 1987 Pan-American Champion, took the lead in round one with 65.66 (215-5), but Khristova took over in round two with 67.78 (222-4½). In the fifth round, Martén got off 70.06 (229-10¼) to win the gold medal. In 1993 Khristova tested positive for steroids and was banned from competition for four years, effectively ending her career.
