The official website of the National Olympic Committee of Armenia continues the project, “Road to Rio”, before the start of the 31st Rio Summer Olympic Games where it will tell about the athletes representing Armenia at the Olympics, and their photos made by photographer Hakob Berberyan specially for the “Road to Rio” project.
The next hero of our project is gymnast Artur Davtyan (vault).Artur was born in 1992. The Rio Olympics are the second Games for the Armenian gymnast. Davtyan is 2013 European bronze and 2016 silver medalist (vault). Strictness and discipline is on the first place in the gymnastics team. The team members are very restrained and serous especially in the presence of the coach. Davtyan is an exception, he always jokes, cheers up everybody and like the coach said; he is the team’s happiness. Our photo session was not an exception; during it Artur amused us with his keen sense of humor.
