Champion of the 31st Summer Olympic Games, Greco-Roman wrestler Artur Aleksanyan dedicates his gold to the soldiers standing at the border and the war heroes who died in April.
''You saw how exhausted I was. The most important is that I wasn't disabled during the fight. I'm happy and proud that Armenia conquers a gold medal after a 20-year break. I was very upset after the April war and even then I decided that if I became a champion I would wear this shirt. This victory I dedicate to the soldiers standing at the border and all victims of the war. As for Mihran, he is a champion for me, he is a champion for the whole world, today we had to have two gold medals,''Aleksanyan said.
