Tears of Joy for Bulgaria's Olympic Winner


Sports: 18 August 2004, Wednesday.

Emotions took over Bulgaria's gold winning shooter Maria Grozdeva during the awarding ceremony in Athens.

Grozdeva emerged as winner in the 25 m pistol women, topping athletes from the Czech Republic and Azerbaijan. That was the first gold medal for Bulgaria in the 28th Olympic Games.

Maria received the medal with tears in her eyes, under the sounds of the Bulgarian national anthem.

Bulgarian top statesmen - including the President and the ministers of sport and foreign affairs, were quick to send congratulation messages to the top shooter.

She will return in Bulgaria on Thursday afternoon, and will be welcomed with a special celebration at the Georgi Asparuhov stadium in Sofia.

Bulgarian Rower Fails on Final

"I made a good sprint to make my position," happy men's skull bronze medallist Ivo Yanakiev (L) said freshly after his successful performance on the Olympics regatta on Saturday. Photo by BNT.

Sports: 21 August 2004, Saturday.

A Bulgarian double skull's rower was run on a stretcher after her final in Saturday's regatta events in Athens.

Bulgarian stroke Miglena Markova was at the centre of a health scare this morning when she collapsed after the final of the women's double sculls.

The 21-year-old passed out and had to be stretchered away for medical treatment straight after she and Anet-Jacgueline Buschmann had finished fourth in their race, missing out on a medal.

There were anxious looks among Bulgarian officials as Markova was treated, but she came around eventually and was then able to gingerly walk away.

Bulgaria's Ivo Yanakiev and Rumyana Neikova won the bronze medals in the finals of respectively the Men's and Women's Single Skulls on Saturday morning.

Yanakiev garnered a final result 6:52.80, outpaced only by the Norwegian Olaf Tufte and Estonian Jueri Jaanson.

The Sydney 2000 silver medallist Rumyana Neikova clocked third time of 7:23,10 following her Germany's and Belarus' rivals.

As has been typical of all outdoor venues at these Games, the Schinias Olympic Rowing and Canoeing Centre has seen high temperatures and intense humidity throughout competition.

Another Olympic Bronze for Bulgaria

Sports: 15 August 2004, Sunday.

Bulgarian Georgi Georgiev swept an Olympic bronze medal in the men's 66 kg Judo competition in Athens.

The Bulgarian sportsman swept the medal after a victory over Spain's Oscar Penas. The gold medal went to Japanese Masato Ushishiba, while the silver was won by Jozef Krnac.

When talking about his achievement Georgiev said "I'm very exited because today I wrote history for Bulgarian judo. I had to compete against the Spanish athlete and the bad decisions of the referees and the judges. I've worked very hard over the last year and I' m very happy that I did it."

Georgiev's medal came 24 year after Bulgaria's last Olympic title in that sport. The last Olympic medals were swept at the Moscow Olympic Games in 1980, when Dimitar Zapryanov swept the silver medal in his category men 100kg and Iliyan Nedkov won the bronze in the men's 66kg.

And one of the stories of the Olympics so far for Bulgaria... Ivet Lalova

Bulgaria's Ivet Advances to Finals

Bulgaria's best runner Ivet Lalova bids on her fresh presence in top track and field to win over her major rivals and win a medal in Saturday's sprint finals. Photo by BNT.
Sports: 21 August 2004, Saturday.

Bulgaria's sprint hopeful Ivet Lalova qualified for the finals at 100m due to take place later tonight after running out third in her series.

Lalova who scored 11.04 sec, the same time as the Jamaican runner, is seen among the most prospective medal winners in this year's track and field events, especially after her main rival French Cristine Aaron could not rank among the first four in her series.

Belarus' Julia Nesterenko proved to be a real phenomenon in Athens 2004 track and field, clocking the 100m distance for less than 11 seconds. She ran the semin-finals for 10.92 sec.

Bulgarian Lalova is leader in this season's IAAF world list with her top score of 10.77 sec clocked June during the European Championship in Plovdiv.

The 20-year-old Bulgarian won the 100m and 200m double at the European junior championships in 2003.
