Habetnak Kurghinyan, the head coach of the Armenia freestyle wrestling team, summed up the Armenian Championship in an interview with journalists.
“The wrestlers were in normal shape, they did their best. Though the number of participants was a little low there are reasons for it. Arsen Harutyunyan didn’t take part in the championship because he is being recovered of injuries. With this championship we are starting the next season, training camps in Tsakhkadzor, a tournament in Iran which will be joined by the wrestlers who took the 1st and 2nd positions and after it there will be the Senior European Championship which will be followed by Olympic qualifying tournaments. We will take into account the results of this championship when choosing a lineup for the European Championship. The champions have more chances of participation but it doesn’t mean that the other wrestlers have no chances, its sports and everything is possible,” the coach said.
