Overview by IAAF    1972_olympic_stadium.jpg
Chizhova had beaten Gummel’s 1968 world record on seven occasions in the four seasons leading into Munich and wanted revenge for her 1968 defeat. The first round settled scores, with Chizhova launching the shot out to a world record 21.03, almost a metre beyond Gummel’s best-ever effort of 20.11. The number two thrower of all-time strove mightily, and her 20.22 was a personal best, but it followed throws of 20.36 and 20.58 by Chizhova, who dominated the event. Khristova edged Dolzhenko by 11cm for third, with Adam and Lange rounding out the top six, as each of the top six produced the best mark ever for the order of finish.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
Nadezhda Chizhova (URS) had been disappointing in 1968 when, as co-favorite, she won only a bronze medal. She had won the last three European Championships (1966, 1969, 1971), and since 1968 had broken the world record six times, most recently in May 1972 with 20.63. The defending champion, Margitta Gummel was back, and had one world record during the recent Olympiad, 20.10 (65-11½) in 1969, but had been surpassed by Chizhova. This time Chizhova did not disappoint, settling matters with her first throw, a world record 21.03 (69-0). Gummel recorded a personal best in round four with 20.22 (66-4¼) but was not close to Chizhova.
