Austria competed at the 1904 Summer Olympics in St. Louis, United States. Austrian and Hungarian results at early Olympic Games are generally kept separate despite the union of the two nations as Austria-Hungary at the time.

Austrian gymnast Julius Lenhart won two gold medals and one silver medal, making him the most successful Austrian competitor ever at the Summer Olympic Games. The International Olympic Committee credit's Lenharts medals to the United States instead of Austria, as he was representing his Philadelphia-based club.
