At the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Crawford ran the 100 m final in 9.89s, finishing in fourth place just 0.04s behind first-place finisher, Justin Gatlin, his friend and training partner. That was the first race in history with four competitors under 9.90s. Crawford went on to win the gold medal in the 200 m in 19.79s. Later, he claimed a silver as part of the US 4 × 100 m relay team.

He qualified for the 2008 Summer Olympics in the 200 m dash, finishing second at the trials after failing to qualify in the 100 m. He originally finished fourth in the 200 m final, but was later promoted to 2nd, winning silver, after fellow countryman Wallace Spearmon and Churandy Martina of the Netherlands Antilles were both disqualified for lane infringements. Originally following the race, Spearmon was disqualified. The United States was ready to file a protest, but first carefully watched video of the race—discovering an additional infraction by Martina. Instead of wasting a protest on Spearmon’s behalf, they protested Martina, netting the USA two medalists, Crawford for the silver and Walter Dix the bronze. Crawford gave his medal to Martina on August 28, 2008 in a tremendous show of sportsmanship. On March 6, 2009, the Court of Arbitration for Sport rejected an appeal by the National Olympic Committee of the Netherlands Antilles against Martina’s disqualification.

Crawford won the 200 m at the 2009 US Championships, and qualified to represent the United States at the 2009 World Championships in Athletics. He ran 19.89s in the final of the competition, his best of the season. However, he was pipped to the bronze medal by Spearmon, and was some distance behind winner Usain Bolt, who set a new world record of 19.19s.
