MEXICO CITY, July 28 (Xinhua) -- On July 25, 1992, the Olympic Torch arrived in Barcelona's Olympic Stadium, in northeast Spain, after traveling across the Mediterranean countries 17 autonomous communities over 39 days. The last Torch bearer, Spain's paralympic archer Antonio Rebollo, lit the cauldron by firing a flaming arrow.

The Olympic Flame burned bright until Aug. 9 after 9,356 athletes (2,704 women) from 169 countries and regions competed in 257 events.

For the first time in 20 years, since the Munich Olympics in 1972, the Games were boycott-free and all International Olympic Committee members competed, with the exception of Afghanistan.

In the years following the 1988 Games in Seoul, South Korea, the world witnessed important political changes.

Apartheid was abolished in South Africa, allowing the country to participate in the Olympic Games again, for the first time since 1960.

Then there was the fall of the Berlin wall in November 1989 and the reunification of East and West Germany (1990) as well as North and South Yemen (1990). Germany attended the Barcelona Games as one united team for the first time since 1960.

With the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the USSR being divided into 15 separate countries, the independent teams of Estonia and Latvia made their first appearance since 1936 at the 1992 Games. Lithuania also sent its first team since 1928. The other 12 former Soviet republics participated as a "Unified Team," although the winners were honored under the flags of their own republics.

The only controversy concerned the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY), which was the subject of United Nations sanctions due to its military aggression against Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina after the Socialist Republic of Yugoslavia separated.

FRY was eventually banned from taking part in team sports, but individual Yugoslav athletes were allowed to compete as "independent Olympic participants." Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia-Herzegovina participated for the first time as independent nations.

In Barcelona, men's basketball opened its doors to all professional players so the United States sent a "Dream Team" of superstars including Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and Larry Bird. Needless to say they dominated the event and took home the gold with an average of 117 points in eight games.

Another impressive performer was gymnast Vitaly Scherbo, from the "Unified Team." She won six gold medals, four of which she won in one day. This became a record in the history of the Olympic discipline.
