The women's 200 metres at the 2005 World Championships in Athletics was held on August 10, 11 and 12 at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium.

Olympic gold medalist Veronica Campbell, Christine Arron and Kim Gevaert were the early leaders out of the blocks. The powerful Campbell ran on the outside of her lane 7 and into the lane of Yulia Gushchina though she was so far ahead of Gushchina that she wasn't in danger of interfering. Arron held the lead as Gevaert faded from contention. Teenage sensation and Olympic silver medalist, Allyson Felix was more than a stride behind and slightly behind her was Rachelle Boone-Smith. While Campbell corrected her heading, Felix began to go by, gaining on Arron. Felix went by Arron and on to the win showing little strain. Arron and Campbell strained to get to the line against each other. Virtually unnoticed, Boone-Smith gained steadily and was able to nip both of them at the line with Arron holding on to beat Campbell for bronze.
