This was the fourth straight Olympics in which women had raced the Europe class as a one-person dinghy event, but it would be the last, and was replaced in 2008 by the Laser Radial class. The heavy favorite was 2003-04 World Champion and the 2003 European Champion, [Siren Sundby] of Norway. She won five of the first 10 races to take a big lead into the final race, but she did have to start that race to win, which she did by placing a conservative 12th, which brought her the gold medal. With her favorite class discontinued at the Olympics, she would switch to Yngling for the 2008 Games, finishing ninth. Silver medalist [Lenka Å mÃdovÃ¡] of the Czech Republic would also abandon the Europe class, switching to 470 at the 2008 Olympics, and placing seventh.
