“Making predictions before the Olympics is a thankless job. But I am repeating that we have the same situation as before the Nanjing Olympics that is we will take part in this Olympics with a world reigning champion and medalists. The Olympic team is comprised of those athletes who have gained Olympic qualifications and this inspires hope that at these Olympic Games we will reach the desired result. And specially for it ANOC President Gagik Tsarukyan organized training camps at coaches’ and athletes’ suggestion,” the vice president of the NOC of Armenia, Hrachya Rostomyan, told reporters.
