The men's 50 metre freestyle swimming event at the 2004 Summer Olympics was contested at the Olympic Aquatic Centre of the Athens Olympic Sports Complex in Athens, Greece on August 19 and 20.[1] The event was won by American Gary Hall Jr., the defending co-champion of this event from the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney.[2]

Eleven first round heats were raced, comprising a total of 86 swimmers. The fastest 16 swimmers from this group qualified to move on to the semifinals stage.[3] After the heats had been raced, the cut-off time was 22.53 seconds. The 16 swimmers who advanced then raced in two semifinals of eight swimmers each, the results being pooled and the fastest eight swimmers advancing to the final.[3] The cut-off time to proceed into the final was 22.19 seconds.
