More about PEYCHEVA Simona:
At the 2001 World Championships in Madrid Simona Peycheva won bronze medals on ball, hoop and clubs and took fourth places in the overall and as a member of the Bulgarian team.
Following the disqualification of the Kabaeva and Tchachina (RUS), because of a positive doping control earlier in the year, in Brisbane and revision of the results- these medals turned into Gold (hoop, ball and clubs and Silver (all-around and rope).

Following a decade of supreme glory and six years of relative decline, Bulgarian Rhythmic Gymnastics, badly needed someone like Simona Peycheva. The 16-years old from Sofia was the first Rhythmic Gymnast who won World individual medals for Bulgaria since the time of the great Maria Petrova, triple World overall champion, in 1993, 1994 and 1995.

Simona?s break through to the elite started in the year 2000 and draw attention over the spring and the summer of 2001. She won top positions and medals at major competitions in Kalamata (GRE), Thiais and Corbeil (France), Burgas and Sofia (Bulgaria), Berlin (GER), Geneva (SUI) and Brisbane (AUS) and by October 2001 she was technically, psychologically and spiritually ready to challenge the best gymnasts in the world at the World Championships in Madrid.

Patras 2007 is her fourth World Championships following Madrid 2001, Budapest 2003 and Baku 2005.
Strong, very dynamic and reliable competitor with amazing technique in handling the apparatus. /va, Sept.07
