Olympic Greco-Roman winner: I admire Arsen Julfalakyan’s style

PanARMENIAN.Net - Russia’s Roman Vlasov commented on his men's 74kg Greco-Roman wrestling victory against Arsen Julfalakyan.

“Arsen Julfalakyan was my idol. I admire his style. I was happy to face off against him at 2011 European championships. However, Alexander Karelin remains my true idol. I was lucky to train with him in the same hall and watch him fight. The lessons I reaped helped me win the Olympic gold today,” championat.com quoted Vlasov as saying.
