Description:
Chile competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece. The Greek alphabet meant that it was the last independent nation before the host nation in the Parade of Nations (in between came Hong Kong, China).

Tennis players Nicolás Massú and Fernando González advanced to the gold medal game of the doubles tournament, and in a thrilling five set match defeated Nicolas Kiefer and Rainer Schüttler of Germany to claim Chile's first ever gold medal. The match started at approximately 11 p.m. in Athens and lasted 3 hours and 43 minutes to conclude shortly before 3 a.m. on August 22.

Massú again took the court the following day in the gold medal game of the singles tournament. This match went to five sets again and lasted an even four hours, but in the end Massú prevailed and won the gold medal over Mardy Fish of the United States. González completed the Chilean party on the Olympic tennis court by claiming the bronze medal.
