As said the ANOC Secretary General Hrachya Rostomyan this kind of result before the Olympics inspires hope.
“I have to say that sport gymnastics firmly enters the top 3 sports of Armenia leaving out such sports as judo and boxing. At this moment we succeed in wrestling, weightlifting and already gymnastics. As you know the sums provided to the federation by the Ministry are very small and the team isn’t able to organize training camps. Therefore the Olympic Committee of Armenia headed by the president Gagik Tsarukyan support the team. When you see the results after supporting somehow you rejoice twice. This kind of result before the Olympics inspires hope. The NOC of Armenia will continue to show its support to all those sports that keep high our country’s sport reputation”, said the ANOC Secretary General Hrachya Rostomyan.
The athletes were welcomed by the ANOC Secretary General, Hrachya Rostomyan, the Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs, Gabriel Ghazaryan, the Armenian Gymnastics Federation President, Albert Azaryan, athletes and relatives.
