Head coach of the Armenia ambo team Vovik Khojayan summed up the team’s participation in the European Games in Minsk in a conversation with the ANOC press service.
“We left for Minsk with 6 athletes and 2 coaches. We had expectations for everyone and we were able to win 4-5 medals. Tigran Kirakosyan’s gold medal was expected and David Grigoryan and Arsen Ghazaryan performed well but I can say the team’s potential is greater. The National Olympic Committee of Armenian covered all the expenses of training camps and sporting wear. In Minsk the Armenian delegation received us properly and after it daily issues were discussed during everyday meetings. I’m also very pleased with the organization,”Vovik Khojayan said.
