Summary

The favorite was Sweden's Stefan Holm. He had been runner-up at the 2002 Europeans and 2003 Worlds, but had won the 2004 World Indoor, and had won 17 consecutive meets leading up to Athina. The 2003 World Champion, Jacques Freitag (RSA), went out in qualifying due to an ankle injury. Four jumpers cleared 2.34 (7-8) with Matt Hemingway (USA) and Jaroslav Bába (CZE) leading with first-attempt clearances. But at 2.36 (7-8¾), only Holm was successful and the gold medal was his. Hemingway won silver over Bába because of Bába two misses at 2.32 (7-7¼).
