Participants34 from 25 countries

The favorite was the South African, Hestrie Cloete, silver medalist in 2000, and the 2001 and 2003 World Champion. Russia’s Yelena Slesarenko was not well known until she won the World Indoor title earlier in 2004. There were six jumpers left after 1.96 (6-5) but Cloete and Slesarenko were tied for the lead as neither had missed at that point. They also cleared 1.99 (6-6¼) and 2.02 (6-7½) on first attempts and were joined at that point by Viktoriya )Vita) Stopina (UKR), who also had a first-jump clearance at 2.02 (6-7½). But Slesarenko won the gold medal at 2.04 (6-8¼) when she was the only successful jumper, Cloete winning her second consecutive silver medal. Slesarenko continued and cleared 2.06 (6-9) before missing three times at the world record of 2.10 (6-10¾).
