Bulgaria’s 1973 European Athletics Indoor Championships women’s 800m champion Stefka Yordanova has died in Burgas at the age of 64 on Sunday.
Yordanova crossed the line in Rotterdam in 2:02.65, a world indoor best as indoor world records were not recognised at that time.
Her time as a European best last just one day short of a year until Poland’s Elzbieta Katolik ran 2:02.38 in the following year’s 1973 European Athletics Indoor Championships in Göteborg.
