Women's marathon champion Constantina Tomescu-Dita was given EUR 12,600 after she won a race that kept Romanians with their fingers crossed for 2 hours, 26 minutes and 44 seconds. The Romanian athlete, born in Turburea village, Gorj county, was also the winner of the Chicago marathon in 2004 and came third in the London marathon in 2004 and 2007.
Another three Romanian athletes were given EUR 3,400 each for their performance at the Olympic Games in Beijing: Cristina Cassandra, who came fifth in the final of the 3,000 meters hurdles, Marian Oprea, who took the same spot in the triple jump final, and Lidia Simon, ranked eighth in the women's marathon.
The four Romanian athletes are part of a group of seven who over the past year have benefited from training grants from Actavis which totaled EUR 84,000 as part of a partnership that focuses on supporting the most promising athletes in the national stable.
