Nazik Avdalyan will be back to sports in two years

PanARMENIAN.Net - Nazik Avdalyan, European and World weightlifting champion will be back to sports in two years after the car crash and lumbar surgery.

“After the rehabilitation process we will consult with the doctors and find out when I can start practicing. I am sorry that I cannot participate in the World Championship and Olympic Games but I am happy for the chance to come back to sports. I have missed it a lot,” she told a press conference in Yerevan.

As for now, the sportswoman studies law and is busy with the construction of her own sports school. She confessed that she has always dreamt that weightlifters had a separate training hall. “I wish to see women’s weightlifting develop in Armenia and I want to help young sportswomen,” Ms. Avdalyan said.

She wished the Armenian national team good luck at the World Championship to be held in Paris in November. “It is now important who will represent Armenia. It is necessary that sportsmen and coaches are content with their performance,” Avdalyan noted.

Avdalyan got in a car crash on Yerevan-Gyumri motorway on April 26. She had a lumbar injury and comminuted fracture of the first vertebra. She underwent a surgery at Erebuni medical center on April 28.
