100 Tezdhyan Naimova 11.11 (+2.5)

800 Teodora Kolarova 2:01.38


Cheers Pav. It'll be interesting to see how Stambolova does in Paris tomorrow against Pospelova and Antyukh with regards to Gothenberg.

They really do, on paper, just need an ok 4th runner to add with Stambo', Dimi' and Kola' to make a good 4x4 team. Utilising one of their 100/200 girls may be the only option they have. Naimova ran on the last leg at the world indoors, and with her improved form she be able to run a better leg... assuming she runs in Gothenberg and not Beijing

I just don't understand where Stambolova has come from! According to Iaaf, she ran 58.x in her heat at worlds 400mh! A year later and she's 50'0, 22'8, 54.x!?? EHm -nah!


58.99 actually - so really 59! (Her SB, and then PB, was 56.29 though - still a great improvement for someone who had never broken a minute before.)

She ran in the 400H in the inaugural WYC, placing 5th in her heat in 1:04.56, however she was a year younger than Pittman and Sanders amongst others.

Arguably Bulgaria and Belarus are even more female-dominated now than they ever were in Iron Curtain and Soviet days, especially in the track events. I share your sentiments, Jaack.

Not sure that's right. The one with the moustache was in Madrid at the Euro Indoors in '05. She stood at the start line with her hand over her lip so we couldn't see her handlebar. I always thought it was Stambolova but checking the results she doesn't seem to have been there.

Jon will know.

Well you took the words right out of my mouth...
Oh, it must have been when Antonina Yefremova was kissing me.
Well you took the words right out of my mouth...
And when I knew they won I knew Stambolova was a dope cheat.
DO-OPE CHEAT...
