The 2004 gymnastics events were held at the Olympiako Kleisto Gymnastirio, or Olympic Indoor Hall, which was part of the Olympiako Athletiko Kentro Athinon Spiros Loues sporting complex, usually known in Greek as the OAKA Spiros Loues.

On the women’s side, Romania and the United States won six medals, but Romanian women won four events, with the others won by the United States and France. The individual star was Romania’s Cătălina Ponor, who won three gold medals.
