"Bogomil Levski breaks through the Brazilian defence and equalises! Ten all!"
-- match report Brazil v Bulgaria final, Daily Prophet, 11 July 2014 (QWC)
The Bulgarians had quite an easy first round match against New Zealand. The collision of Levski and NZ Chaser Dennis Moon caused the latter to be sent off – even though the two had previous history (QWC).
Other canon notes and references
Since Bulgaria's Seeker, Viktor Krum (born 1976), was the oldest player at the tournament (QWC), Levski must have been born after 1976.
Bogomil is a name of Slavic origin meaning "dear to god", deriving from bog = "god" and mil = "dear" (Wikipedia).
Levski means "like a lion" in archaic Bulgarian and the currency of Bulgaria, which features lions, is the lev (Wikipedia). The name may also have been inspired by Vasil Levski, a famous Bulgarian hero (Vasil Ivanov Kunchev, 1837-1873).
