The women's 100 metres hurdles at the 2004 Summer Olympics as part of the athletics program were held at the Athens Olympic Stadium from August 22 to 24.

The top two runners in each of the initial five heats automatically qualified for the semifinals. The next six fastest runners from across the heats also qualified. There were two semifinal heats, and only the top four from each heat advanced to the final.

Joanna Hayes led through all the rounds, her closest competitor, Perdita Felicien. In the final, Felicien crashed the first hurdle with her lead leg, falling to her right and taking out Irina Shevchenko along with her. In the lane to her left, Hayes zoomed away from the field unabated, challenged by American teammate Melissa Morrison through the first four hurdles, which Morrison clipped, almost turned sideways to keep her balance and slowing through the next two hurdles.[1][2] Lacena Golding-Clarke and Olena Krasovska battled on the inside of the track. As Krasovska began to edge ahead for the silver, Clarke slowed over the last four hurdles while Morrison battled back to take the bronze. However, she repeatedly suffered an Olympic misfortune in the hurdles, crashing in a heap on the first hurdle of the qualifying heat.[3]
