The men's all-around championship event was held at Francis Field in St. Louis, Missouri on July 4, 1904. It was the only time the all-around, a forerunner to the later decathlon, was contested at the Olympics; whether the competition was part of the Olympic program has been disputed, but the International Olympic Committee currently recognizes it as an official Olympic event.[1]

7 athletes from 2 nations competed. It was one of only 2 (out of 25) track and field events not won by an American; Tom Kiely, an Irishman, won with 6036 points.
