Yes, The Athlete Who Tripped Over A Hurdle And Didn't Finish The Race Is Named "Stambolova"

Vania Stambolova worked for four years to reach this moment: representing her home Bulgaria in the Summer Games. Alas, she couldn't escape her name, as her performance in the 400m hurdles came to an end with a DNF in her heat after she stumbled over a hurdle. It's the second time she's been stopped short of the finish; in 2009, she was banned for two years for doping.
