Gymnastics at the 2004 Summer Games: Previous Summer Games ▪ Next Summer Games


Host City: Athina, Greece
Venue(s): Olympic Indoor Hall, Athens Olympic Sports Complex Spiros Loues, Maroussi
Date Started: August 14, 2004
Date Finished: August 23, 2004

Gold: ITA Igor Cassina
Silver: USA Paul Hamm
Bronze: JPN Isao Yoneda


The format was the same as it had been from 1984-2000, with eight gymnasts advancing from the team all-around, but no more than two per nation. Russia’s [Aleksey Nemov] was the defending champion and made the final. He performed what appeared to be a difficult routine with flawless execution except for a small step on landing, but was given a score of 9.725, causing the crowd to erupt in a noisy protest. After a consultation the judges adjusted the score to 9.762, which did little to placate the crowd. American [Paul Hamm] was up next and similarly performed well except for a small step on landing, earning a score of 9.812, which only further angered the crowd. Italian [Igor Cassina], who had been the 2003 World bronze medalist, then did his routine, matching Hamm’s score, but winning the gold medal on a tie-breaker. Japan’s [Isao Yoneda] and Hamm’s twin brother, [Morgan], tied for third with 9.787, with Yoneda winning the bronze medal, also by tie-breaker. Because of ties in qualifying, this event unusually had 10 finalists.
