Olympic champion Nazaryan: sports museum must be opened in Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Olympic, European and world Greco Roman wrestling champion Armen Nazaryan wants a museum showcasing Armenian sportsmen’s achievements to be opened in Armenia. In this context, he expressed readiness to present to the museum the first Olympic gold medal he brought to Armenia in 1996.

“Our Olympic wrestlers must perform to the full, they must fight till the last moment, they must fight for every point,” Nazaryan said, citing both weight and psychological problems as the main factors hampering Armenian weightlifters’ success at London Olympics.

Dwelling on his decision to represent Bulgaria, he said, “I love my country and I have always done the utmost for it. However, after I became an Olympic champion, our government didn’t appreciate me. I was offered to return to Armenia only in 2001, but my demands remained unsatisfied.”
