Bulgarian biathlete Blagoy Todev who won the European Youth Biathlon Title is selling his gold medal at a charity auction. The medal has been in Blagoy Todev’s procession for several days only. The twenty year-old athlete, who won the title at the championship in Pokljuka, Slovenia, is ready to sell his medal for a good cause. He announced his decision in the social networks.

I promised myself before the start of the competition that if I manage to earn a medal, I will sell it for a charitable cause. The charity initiative aims to support Neli Galabova from the town of Bansko, Blagoy Todev said in a video message. Neli Galabova is a Bulgarian nurse who has helped many people. Now, however, she is the one who needs help, because she was diagnosed with cancer.
