These days the Armenian freestyle wrestling team is holding training camps in Yerevan.
''The staff has been chosen taking into account the results of training camps and four international qualifiers. Those wrestlers who failed at the European Championship have been substituted. We have given an opportunity to other wrestlers to measure their strengths. I have repeatedly noted that the wrestler who will gain a qualification will leave for the Rio Olympics. Actually, everyone can struggle and gain a qualification, but being realistic we hope to conquer 3-4 qualifications'', Armenia freestyle wrestling team's head coach Arayik Baghdadyan said in a conversation with the ANOC press service.
The first qualifier will be held on April 15-17 in Zrenjanin, Serbia.
