2013 world and European champion, freestyle wrestler Davit Safaryan will take part in the Rio Olympic Games.
We had already informed that the United World Wrestling (UWW) was going to discuss the issue of providing the qualification to Safaryan during the Executive Commission meeting as Serbian Qualifier finalist and qualification winner Andrey Kvyatkovski’s as well as Poland’s Mohamedmurad Gajiev’s doping tests had come out positive and as a result the wrestlers had been disqualified.
The United World Wrestling have decided to provide the qualification to Safaryan.
Prior to it the Armenian freestyle wrestling team had 3 Olympic qualifications conquered by Garnik Mnatcakanyan (57kg), Georgy Ketoyev (97kg) and Levan Berianidze (125kg).
