Athlete Gayane Chiloyan: “Road to Rio”

12:00 - 14 Jul, 2016

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 the youngest Olympian of independent Armenia, runner Gayane Chiloyan. She was born in Yerevan in 2000. She was 10 when she began practicing athletics. The runner gained an Olympic qualification at the Armenian Championship. Gayane is realistic enough and doesn’t have big expectations of the 31st Summer Olympic Games but she knows that these Games will give her an irreplaceable experience.
