Participating nations[edit]

A total of 197 nations participated in the different Athletics events at the 2004 Summer Olympics. Numbers in parenthesis indicate the number of athletes representing each nation.

Notes[edit]

a After the announcement of the disqualification for doping of the athlete Yuri Bilonog (UKR), who won the gold medal at the time, there was a new distribution of medals in March 2013. According to a statement from the IOC, the new owner of the gold medal went to Adam Nelson (USA), the silver medal went to Joachim Olsen (DEN), and the bronze medal went to Manuel Martínez (ESP).[1][2]
b Ivan Tsikhan (BLR), was disqualified due to doping. There was no decision of the IOC to redistribute the medals.[1][3]
c The United States victory has been in doubt since 2010 when Crystal Cox (USA), who ran in the preliminary round, admitted to using anabolic steroids from 2001 to 2004. In July 2012, IOC decided to revoke the gold medal from Crystal Cox and asked the IAAF to make its decision about the US squad. On 31 May 2013 the IOC and IAAF announced that the result would stand, allowing the rest of the US squad to retain their medals and that they considered the case closed.[4][5]
d Svetlana Krivelyova (RUS), was disqualified due to doping. There was no decision of the IOC redistributes the medals.[1][3]
e Iryna Yatchenko (BLR), was disqualified due to doping. The IOC decided that the bronze medal was reallocated to the athlete Věra Pospíšilová-Cechlová (CZE) during the IOC Executive Board on 30 May 2013.[1][2]
