2005 European Athletics Indoor Championships

The 28th European Athletics Indoor Championships were held at the Palacio de Deportes in Madrid, the capital city of Spain, from Friday, 4 March to Sunday, 6 March 2005. This was the first edition to be held in an odd year since switching to the biennial format, so as not to occur in the same as the outdoor European Athletics Championships and also recently moved IAAF World Indoor Championships. To accommodate this change, there was a two-year gap since the previous edition. It also marked the last time that the 200 metres were contested at the event.

    • (*) Turkey's Tezeta Desalegn-Dengersa originally won the 3,000 m silver medal in 8:46.65, but was later disqualified for doping offence (metenolone). This was announced on April 6, 2006.
    • (**) Bianca Kappler was awarded joint bronze medal as final jump was incorrectly measured. The jump was misread, putting her in first place, but she pointed out the mistake and was awarded the medal for fair play.
