The head coach of the Armenian freestyle wrestling youth team, Avetik Vardanyan, said to ANOC press service that he is both pleased and displeased with the wrestlers.
“Here the competitiveness was really big. I have some complaints and shortcomings but I am also pleased with some wrestlers, for example, with Gevorg Mkheyan who had placed 4th at the Armenian Championship but here he had 4 victories and 2 defeats. There were 44 wrestlers in the 66kg weight class and Gevorg proved himself well. As for the upcoming plans, on May 21 we will conduct a training camp in Tsakhkadzor”, Vardanyan noted.
