13:20 - 25 Jul, 2016

The main sporting event of the last four years, Olympic Games, will kick off in a few days.

At the 31st Summer Olympic Games Armenia's flag bearer will be swimmer Vahan Mkhitaryan. ANOC President Gagik Tsarukyan announced it at the meeting with athletes and reporters.

In a conversation with the ANOC press service Mkhitaryan confessed that he had been so confused and excited that had forgotten to thank the president for the mission entrusted to him.

''To say sincerely, I was very surprised; I was so confused that I didn’t expressed my gratitude. This is a great honor for me. Believe me, I can't describe it in words. The only thing I want to do at this moment is to shout for joy,'' Mkhitaryan said.

Mkhitaryan was also a flag bearer at the Nanjing Youth Olympics.
