The women's shot put at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens was held on 18 August 2004 at the Ancient Olympia Stadium. It was originally planned to hold the discus throw at this venue, but it was discovered that the field was not large enough to accommodate the range of modern discus throwers, and would have posed a danger to spectators. As such, it was decided instead to hold the shot put at the site, despite the fact that the shot put was not contested at the Ancient Olympic Games. All distances are given in metres.

On August 23, 2004, Russian shot putter Irina Korzhanenko was stripped of her gold medal and thereby received a lifetime ban by the International Olympic Committee after she tested positive for the steroid stanozolol.[1] After the announcement of Korzhanenko's disqualification, her victory and medal were formally removed from the records, permitting Cuba's Yumileidi Cumbá, Germany's Nadine Kleinert, and Korzhanenko's teammate Svetlana Krivelyova to upgrade their respective position for a new distribution medals. Accordingly, the gold medal was reverted to Cumba, silver to Kleinert, and bronze to Krivelyova.[2] On December 5, 2012, eight years after the official medal ceremony, Krivelyova was ordered to hand back her bronze after drug re-testings of her samples on oxandrolone had been discovered positive, leaving her place vacant until present.[3][4][5] Since 2004, the next two finishers Nadzeya Astapchuk and Natallia Kharaneka have both been banned for doping offenses.

Competition format[edit]

Each athlete receives three throws in the qualifying round. All who achieve the qualifying distance progress to the final. If less than twelve athletes achieve this mark, then the twelve furthest throwing athletes reach the final. Each finalist is allowed three throws in last round, with the top eight athletes after that point being given three further attempts.[6]
