There were eight competitions for men and Spain qualified four boats, but had no women competing in 1984.[2] Although he had competed at the 1980 Summer Olympics,[3] Manuel Vera Vázquez was still the youngest competitor of the Spanish rowing team.[2] The coxless pair of Fernando Climent and Luis María Lasúrtegui was a surprise medallist, and as of 2016, the team's silver medal is the only Olympic rowing medal that the nation has ever won.[4]
