Anna Bogaliy-Titovets won at this track at the pre-Olympic trial event in 2005, when she finished in a time of 50:47.9 with one penalty minute, while Andrea Henkel was the defending World and Olympic champion.[2] Henkel had not won a 15 km World Cup race apart from these two wins in the Championships, however,[3] and Sweden's Anna Carin Olofsson was the World Cup leader before the Games.[citation needed]

Olga Pyleva originally placed second in the race, but was found to be in violation of anti-doping rules when she tested positive for carphedon, and she was then disqualified.[4]
