Titarenko qualified for the men's 100 m freestyle, as Kazakhstan's oldest swimmer (aged 26), at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. He achieved a FINA B-standard of 51.91 from the Kazakhstan Open Championships in Almaty.[3] He challenged seven other swimmers in heat three, including five-time Olympian Carl Probert of Fiji. He raced to sixth place in 52.09, just 0.18 of a second off his entry time. Titarenko failed to advance into the semifinals, as he placed fifty-first overall out of 71 swimmers in the preliminaries.[4][5]
