  • The women's 400 metres hurdles was one of 23 track events of the athletics at the 2004 Summer Olympics, in Athens, Greece. It was contested at the Athens Olympic Stadium, from August 21 to August 25, by a total of 34 athletes from 25 nations. In the first round, the first two runners from each of the five heats, together with the six fastest losing runners from all heats, automatically qualified for the semifinals. In the semifinals, these 16 runners competed in two heats, with the first four from each heat advancing to the final. Greek sprinter Fani Halkia was the surprising winner despite having broken the Olympic record in her semifinal heat.
