The women's high jump competition at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens was held at the Olympic Stadium on 26–28 August.[1][2]

Competition format[edit]

The competition consisted of two rounds, qualification and final. Athletes start with a qualifying round. Jumping in turn, each athlete attempts to achieve the qualifying height. If they fail at three jumps in a row, they are eliminated. After a successful jump, they receive three more attempts to achieve the next height. Once all jumps have been completed, all athletes who have achieved the qualifying height go through to the final. If fewer than 12 athletes achieve the qualifying standard, the best 12 athletes go through. Cleared heights reset for the final, which followed the same format until all athletes fail three consecutive jumps.[3]

Schedule[edit]

All times are Greece Standard Time (UTC+2)
