Armenia's Greco-Roman wrestling team member Mihran Harutyunyan became a silver medalist of the 31st Summer Olympic Games.
In the final Harutyunyan's opponent was world former champion, Serb Davor Stefanek. The beautiful and tough fight ended 1:1 and as the Serb was the last to earn a point, the referees gave the victory to Stefanek.
Before reaching the final Harutyunyan had prevailed over Egypt's Saleh Kahk 9:0. In the second fight Harutyunyan had beaten 2:1 Korean Ryu Hansu and continued the struggle in the semifinals where he had defeated 3:1 Azerbajani Rasul Chunayev.
