“Of course the rivalry at the European Team Chess Championship was very intense. Even after competition we weren’t sure of taking any prize place. But by additional points we came in second and it was very joyous. I think playing a match is enough to feel you a team member. Being a part of this team is a great honor”, the new team member, Karen Grigoryan told the reporters.
