Petar has been mentioned on this site before and I feel is still very much underrated as an athlete. His achievements are now furthered with this win in Canada witha anice touch dedicating it to his fellow country people.
Bulgaria's top swimmer Petar Stoychev triumphed with an unprecedented victory at the Traversée Internationale du Lac Memphrémagog in Magog, Canada on Sunday.
The Bulgarian managed to overtake the frontrunner Ian Van der Hulst of the Netherlands to win his sensational 11th straight Traversée.
"We managed to achieve what we wanted in Canada. I dedicate my victory to all Bulgarians," said Stoychev.
