• Bulgarian triple jumper Petrova positive for meldonium – official


    SOFIA: Bulgaria’s European indoor triple jump silver medallist Gabriela Petrova has tested positive for the recently banned meldonium, her manager Venitsa Atanasova said on Monday. “Gabriela Petrova tested positive for meldonium during an out of competition test,” Atanasova told public BNT television. The test was conducted in Bulgaria on February 6, she added. Atanasova said that the 23-year-old had taken the substance in 2015 while it was not yet listed as a banned substance by World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Petrova won a silver medal in the triple jump at the European Indoor Championships in March 2015 in Prague and was named Sports Person of Bulgaria the same year. Meldonium was added to the list of banned substances on January 1, 2016.
