Wheelchair racing at the 2004 Summer Olympics featured as a demonstration event within the athletics programme at the Athens Olympic Stadium on 22 August 2004. There were two events: an 800 m race for women and a 1500 m race for men. Medals were not awarded, as the sport was not part of the official competition.
