Tereza Moncheva Marinova (Bulgarian: Тереза Мончева Маринова; born 5 September 1977 in Pleven) is a Bulgarian athlete who specialised in the triple jump. She was the gold medallist in that event at the 2000 Summer Olympics and a bronze medallist at the 2001 World Championships in Athletics and 1998 European Athletics Championships. She won triple jump titles at the 2001 IAAF World Indoor Championships and 2002 European Athletics Indoor Championships. She made her international debut in 1994 and retired in 2008.
Her personal best in the triple jump of 15.20 m (49 ft 10+1⁄4 in), set during her Olympic win, is the Bulgarian national record. Marinova's winning jump of 14.62 m (47 ft 11+1⁄2 in) at the 1996 World Junior Championships in Athletics remains the world under-20 record for the triple jump. She also has a best of 6.53 m (21 ft 5 in) in the long jump, set indoors in 2002.
At the Bulgarian Athletics Championships, she won three triple jump titles (1995, 1996, 2003) and one long jump title in 2000. She also won three triple jump titles at the Bulgarian Indoor Athletics Championships (1996, 1999, 2006), as well as the long jump title in 2000. Marinova won six Balkan championships indoors and outdoors.
In her earlier days she became both European Junior and World Junior champion, and she still holds the world junior record at triple jump. At the 2000 Summer Olympics she won the gold medal with a personal best jump of 15.20 metres.
Her father Moncho was a prominent 800 metres runner who once set a Bulgarian record and still holds the Bulgarian one mile record, and her brother Tsvetomir was a talented 400 metres runner.
Tereza Marinova retired from athletics shortly before the start of the 2008 Summer Olympics. Nine months after that she started work as an athletics instructor. Marinova was one of the commentators for the Bulgarian National Television during the 2012 Summer Olympics. She is currently an instructor at the National Sports Academy.
