Daily Summary: 4

 

Fourth day of the Athens Olympic Games!

11 Spectacular Finals in Artistic Gymnastics, Fencing, Judo, Shooting, and Swimming, as well as 23 other Events, held in 20 Olympic venues, characterised the fourth day of the ATHENS 2004 Olympics.

Shooting:
Russia's Mikhail NESTRUEV won gold medal in Men's 50m Pistol in the first final of the Games' day five, while Ahmed ALMAKTOUM from United Arab Emirates won gold medal in Men's Double Trap.

Judo:
The Greek judoka Ilias Iliadis, after a spectacular way through the last day of the event of the -81k category, won the second Gold medal for host country, Greece, leaving behind him big names of the sport like the Russian NOSSOV Dmitri and the Ukranian GONTYUK Roman

Volleyball - men:
Russia won in straight-sets against Australia at the Peace and Friendship Stadium, 3-0 (25-17, 26-14, 25-23).
This was Russia’s first win in the tournament, while Australia is still looking for their first one.

Swimming:
The United States won its fifth gold medal at the Olympic Aquatic Centre here Tuesday, and avenged its defeat by Australia in the Men's 4 x 200m Freestyle Relay at the Sydney Games four years earlier.
Cheered on by a vocal contingent of American swimmers and fans, Klete KELLER (USA) held off the newly crowned 200m and 400m Olympic champion, Ian THORPE, over the final 100 metres to anchor the USA team to its 13th gold medal in this event in a new American record time of 7:07.33.
Led out by Michael PHELPS (USA) in a time of 1:46.49, the Americans had half a body length lead over the Australians at the first change.
