Nataliya Grigoryeva (Ukrainian: Наталія Григорьєва, née Dorofeyeva on 3 December 1962) is a retired athlete who specialized in the 100 metres hurdles. She represented the Soviet Union and Ukraine, and holds the Ukrainian record.

Career[edit]

Grigoryeva was born in Ishimbay in today's Bashkortostan, and represented the club Spartak in Kharkiv.[1] She finished fourth at the 1988 Olympic Games,[2] won the gold medal at the 1990 Goodwill Games,[3] and won the bronze medal at the 1991 World Championships.[2] She was caught for doping around this point in her career.[4]

She also competed at the 1990 European Championships, [5] the 1996 Olympic Games[1] and the 1997 World Indoor Championships without reaching the final.[2]

Her personal best time was 12.39 seconds, achieved in July 1991 in Kiev.[2] This is the current Ukrainian record, even though she achieved it whilst representing the Soviet Union.[6][7] As of 2015, this time still ranks her in the top 10 on the world all-time list. In the 60 metres hurdles she had a personal best time of 7.85 seconds, achieved in February 1990 in Chelyabinsk.[2]
