The women's 800 metres at the 2006 European Athletics Championships were held at the Ullevi on August 7, 8 and August 10.

Klyuka was ahead with another athlete already in a medal position, but on the final bend Kotlyarova found herself boxed in. Lyne had already made a dash for home, and Kotlyarova had to push her out the way to start her sprint. Kotlyarova made a great dash and went in front of the other two Russians and an athlete from Ukraine. Lyne started sprinting and overtook the Ukrainian athlete, just pipping her into 3rd place.
