The next hero of our project is freestyle wrestler, super heavyweight Levan Berianidze. He was born in Georgia in 1990. In 2010 he won a bronze medal at the World Championship. In 2015 he joined the Armenian freestyle wrestling team and gained an Olympic qualification in its line-up at the World Championship in Vegas. He has always dreamed of going to Olympics. The wrestler spares no effort to remember the Olympic Games with a medal.
