Mirela DEMIREVA - Bulgaria - 2016 Olympic Games & European Champs silver medals.

Following her silver medal at the 2016 European Athletics Championships Mirela Demireva

traveled to Rio de Janeiro the next month to contest the Olympic title and returned to

Bulgaria  with another silver medal, plus a new PB of 1.97 metres.  In Rio, with only one

failure leading up to 2.00 metres (which none of the women cleared), she beat 2007

and 2009 World Champion Blanka Vlašić  and only an error free display by Ruth Beitia

possibly stopped her from winning.
