Armenia’s only representative in judo Ferdinand Karapetyan dropped out of the judo tournament of the European Games underway in Minsk, Belarus.

The judoka at 73 kg lost the repechage bout to Azerbaijan’s Khidayad Heydarov and lost the chance to fight for bronze.

Ferdinand Karapetyan had started the competition from the 1/16 finals where he had defeated Portugal’s Jorge Fernandez.

In the 1/8 final Ferdinand had been stronger than Russia’s Musa Mogushkov but in the quarterfinals the Armenian judoka conceded to Azerbaijan’s Rustam Orujev and had got only a right to participate in the repechage round.
