Suicidal gymnast Tsveti Stoyanova had depression and withdrew from the team herself - Sport Minister

Minister of Sport Krassen Kralev said that according to his information, Bulgaria's rhythmic gymnast Tsvetelina Stoyanova has suffered from depression and has refused to join the team herself, and therefore had to be replaced by another competitor. Yesterday the Golden Team member tried to attempt suicide by threwing herself from the 6th floor of her Sofia apartment.


"The Bulgarian Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation is the only one which has a psychologist who has been with with them consistently in the last 2-3 years," said Minister Kralev.


The next days will be critical for Tsvetelina. According to Kralev, Tsveti complained that she could not sleep and was not feeling well in the last two weeks, especially after the World Cup final in gymnastics. As such, she requested not to participate in the upcoming competition of the team.


However, it is unclear what measures were taken by the psychologist in the Federation to improve the condition of Tsvetelina Stoyanova.


The suicidal athlete remains in critical condition and doctors are fighting for her life.
