Olympic history (summary)
Summer Games
Winter Games

Hong Kong competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, from 13 to 29 August 2004. This was the nation's thirteenth appearance at the Olympics, excluding the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, because of the United States boycott, and the last nation to enter the stadium in the opening ceremony before the host nation, because of the use of the Greek alphabet.

The Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China sent a total of 32 athletes to the Games, 14 men and 18 women, to compete in 10 sports, surpassing only a single athlete short of the record from Sydney four years earlier. For the first time in Olympic history, Hong Kong was represented by more female than male athletes. Thirteen of them had previously competed in Sydney, including track cyclist Wong Kam Po, Mistral windsurfer and 1996 Olympic champion Lee Lai Shan, and backstroke swimmer Sherry Tsai, who later became the nation's flag bearer in the opening ceremony as her team entered last into the stadium for the second time since the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul.[1]

Hong Kong left Athens with a striking silver medal effort from table tennis players Ko Lai Chak and Li Ching in the men's doubles tournament. Indeed, both of them became the first male athletes to claim an Olympic medal for Hong Kong after gaining its territorial independence from the colonial British rule in 1997.[2][3]
