Colombiamarker competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athensmarker, Greecemarker. The Colombian Olympic Committee sent a 53-member delegation to Greecemarker.

Although most of the athletes had uneventful participations, weightlifter Mabel Mosquera won the bronze medal for Colombia, while cyclist María Luisa Calle originally finished in the bronze medal position, but was later disqualified under the strict liability rule after she tested positive for Heptaminol, a prohibited stimulant. However this proved to be a false positive due to isometheptene presence in an analgesic prescribed during the competition. The bronze medal was returned to Calle on November 23, 2005.
