Member of the Armenian ski team Sergey Mikaelyan gives great importance to the international tournaments organized in Armenia.
“The first FIS SES Cross-Country Cup is organized in our country and it is very important for me to achieve a good result in this tournament. I was competing with two strong skiers from Belarus. As for my future plans I still don’t know what tournaments I am going to participate in”, Mikaelyan said to reporters.
Another Armenian representative Katya Galstyan opines that the competition wasn’t that easy. “The rivalry was very successful but I couldn’t concentrate better because of the snow.
