Armenian gymnast could miss World Championships due to positive Covid test

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian gymnast Vahagn Davtyan could miss the World Championships due to a positive coronavirus test, the Gymnastics Federation of Armenia revealed on Saturday, October.

Before leaving Armenia, Davtyan's test returned negative, but the second one in Japan returned positive, the Federation said in a statement.

"Davtyan has no symptoms, he feels very well, he has been isolated in Tokyo. At the moment, the Federation and the Armenian Embassy in Japan are making every effort to have Davtyan tested again, as we consider the result is wrong, but they are still refusing to test him," the statement said, adding that the Championships have not been organized "properly".
