Armenian Sport Victories

“Happy birthday to Vanes Martirosyan”, I gladly join Armenia blog, who is celebrating successes of Armenian sport, this time remembering the recent boxing victory, posting an Armenia blog exclusive interview with this young and successful Armenian boxer and giving some stunning statistics:

How many people can claim 13 victories, 9 knockouts, and no losses in a very scary sport? Hardly any! May you rise to the top and make Armenians the world over proud!

Since we got started on sport, here’s something I came across with on a newly discovered Armenian blog, Unzipped:

After great success of Armenian chess players wining Chess Olympiad, Turin (Italy) 2006, today is another occasion for celebrations – Armenian weightlifters displayed masterclass in European Weightlifting Championship, Strasbourg (France), crowned Team No 1 in Europe:

10 gold and 8 silver and bronze medals
