The Men's Hammer Throw at the 2000 Summer Olympics as part of the athletics program was held at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday, 23 September and Sunday, 24 September.

The qualifying athletes progressed through to the final where the qualifying distances are scrapped and they start afresh with up to six throws. The eight highest-ranked competitors after three rounds qualified for the final three throws to decide the medals. The qualifying distance was 77.50 metres. For all qualifiers who did not achieve the standard, the remaining spaces in the final were filled by the longest throws until a total of 12 qualifiers.
