Armenian wrestlers win four gold medals at Grand Prix de France

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian wrestlers won four gold and two bronze medals in the men's Greco-Roman events at the United World Wrestling Grand Prix de France Henri Deglane in Nice.

In particular, Rudik Mkrtchyan (55 kg weight category), Karen Aslanyan (67 kg), Hrant Kalachyan (72 kg) and Arsen Julfalakyan (77 kg) took first prizes in their respective categories.

Gevorg Gharibyan (60 kg) and Artur Shahinyan (97 kg), meanwhile, won bronze medals.

More than 300 wrestlers had registered to compete in the 45th edition of the prestigious event, regarded as an International Tournament by United World Wrestling and not part of its ranking series.

The event is named after Deglane, who won Olympic gold for France in the heavyweight category at their home Paris Games in 1924.
