|More about TRASHLIEVA Yulia:|
| Julia represented Bulgaria at the 1st WC in Budapest, Hungary, 7th December 1963. She won two bronze medals. The two other Bulgarians were Julietta Shishmanova and Violetta Bechtchijska.
Julietta finished 20th. At the end of her career, she became a founder of the Bulgarian RSG School, a President of the RSG Federation and a member of the RSG-TC of the FIG. She lost her life in an air crash in 1978.
Violetta finished 16th in Budapest. In 1965 this very lady gave birth to a baby girl who was to become two times All Around World champion, Diliana Gueorgieva (1983 and 1985).
Julia Trashlieva was a unique talent in both Artistic and Rhythmic gymnastics. In Artistic she won the national title 6 times and in RSG 8 times. Physically and psychologically she was born for gymnastics. Julia was an excellent technician and her jumping abilities were more than impressive. She possessed this rare quality to "stay" in the air while jumping. The specialists at that time were unanimous, that nothing else but only certain lack of artistry in Julia performances, could possibly give victory chances to her rivals. Moreover, she used to accept the competitive floor as a battle field and knew very well how to embarrass her opponents. In short Julia was born warrior. In RSG she coached herself.
Trashlieva's name was connected with the first Bulgarian success in Groups competitions, introduced at WC in Copenhagen DEN in 1967.
For a number of years Julia Trashlieva coached in Belgium and Holland and now she is retired and lives in Sofia.
