Yuliya Pechonkina

Yuliya Sergeyevna Pechonkina, née Nosova (Russian: Юлия Сергеевна Печёнкина, born 21 April 1978 in Krasnoyarsk) is a Russian former athlete who specialized in the 400 metres hurdles and 4 x 400 metres relay.

She holds the current world record in both 400 m hurdles (52.34 seconds achieved on 8 August 2003 in Tula) and the rarely contested 4 x 200 metres relay indoor (1:32.41 with Yekaterina Kondratyeva, Irina Khabarova and Yuliya Gushchina).

She had a recurring problem with sinusitis, an illness which caused her to miss both the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2009 World Championships in Berlin. Given her ill health, she decided to retire from athletics soon after the World Championships and instead took a job in the banking sector.
