At the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens Greece, Pavlova turned what is considered to be her best performances to date. Her Russian team clawed their way back onto the medal podium, finishing third behind Romania and the United States.

Pavlova came back to win an individual bronze medal on the vault during the event finals. Throughout the Olympics, there was considerable controversy regarding both the all-around and event finals; some fans contended that Pavlova was scored too low and ought to have won silver on vault and bronze on beam. However, those people were somewhat uninformed because Annia Hatch, the silver medalist, was a far superior vaulter to Pavlova and achieved much more height and distance on her vaults. Pavlova's mistake in beam finals cost her the bronze there to Romania's Alexandra Eremia. In the All-Around, however, there was little question that Pavlova deserved to medal. She was underscored on both the beam and the floor. However, those who contend that she should have won the All-Around silver medal are in the minority, for her 9.7 Start Value on the bars largely prevented her from toppling Khorkina, despite a couple generous scores received by the latter.
