These are the official results of the Men's Hammer Throw event at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. There were a total number of 27 participating athletes.

In this Olympics, the Unified Team comprised the remnants of what was the Soviet Union, essentially stripping the newfound countries of their individual identity. Including the Tajik Andrey Abduvaliyev, Belorussian Igor Astapkovich and Russian Igor Nikulin this created a sweep for the Unified Team. A fourth former Soviet, Jüri Tamm was able to compete separate from the Unified Team.

The three dominated the competition, almost consistently in the 80's when others were in the 70's. Astapkovich, the strongest in the season, held the lead after the first round and retook it in the third. Abduvaliyev settled it with his fourth round throw 82.54 m (270 ft 912 in) while both Astapkovich and Nikulin hit their best throws in the final round, they could not match it.
