    Main venue: Helsinki Olympic Stadium
Overview by IAAF   Helsinki Olympic Stadium 
Ivanova, holder of the fastest-ever time (an unratified 1:24:50 in 2001), and teenager Jiang were the early leaders. They passed 5Km in 21:43. Jiang dropped back and was disqualified before halfway, leaving Ivanova (42:54) with a yawning lead of more than a minute over Turova (43:59). Ivanova kept piling on the pace passing 15Km in 64:05 (another 21:11 split), before finishing in an official world record of 1:25:41, beating the Belarusian by 1:25. Feitór won the bronze medal with seven seconds to spare from the fast-closing Vascó. It had not been a good day for Olympic Champions, as 2004 winner Athanasía Tsoumeléka was disqualified when in fourth place with 4Km to go, while defending champion and 1996 Olympic Champion Nikolayeva failed to finish. The youthful-looking Ivanova, mother of a 15 year-old daughter, was the only one of the top six not to set a personal best, yet ironically her record netted her a $100,000 bonus to go with the $60,000 awarded to each individual winner in Helsinki.
 The Women's 20 km race walk event at the 2005 World Championships in Athletics was held on August 7 in the streets of Helsinki with the start at 11:35h local time, and the goal line situated in the Helsinki Olympic Stadium. Russia's Olimpiada Ivanova won the race in a world record time of 1:25:41 hours.

Event Report - Women 20 kilometre Race Walk

Ivanova is top of the Worlds

Olimpiada Ivanova regained her status as World champion this morning with a consummate display of race walking around the streets of Helsinki, as she set the first World record of the 10th IAAF World Championships in the 20km Race Walk.

Ivanova clocked 1hr 25min 41sec, bettering Yan Wang's 1:26:22 from 2001, and so will claim a $100,000 record bonus.

The silver medal went to Ryta Turava, who set a national record for Belarus, with 1:27:05, with Portugal's Susana Feitor coming through from sixth to third in the final 5km to clock 1:28:44.

In Edmonton four years ago, Ivanova had finished in a faster time as she won the World title for the first time, but road walking world records, and the criteria required to fulfil them, were first laid down by the IAAF from January 2004.

Today, the 34-year-old Russian was never headed through the 20 kilometres up and down Mannerheiminte, a street named after one of Finland's greatest war heroes and past presidents, as rivals tried to challenge her, but either faded away or failed to match Ivanova's technique.

Among those to be penalised by the judges were Jing Jiang, the Chinese champion, who was red-carded shortly after the halfway mark, and Cristina Lopez, of El Salvador, whose race was over just before 12km.

Indeed, the judging claimed other notables, including Greece's Olympic champion, Athanasia Tsoumeleka, being taken off the road within the final 4km.

Ivanova, however, did not receive a single judge's warning throughout the race, in which her 5km splits were 21:43, 42:54 and 1:04:05.
