Armenian Wrestler Wins Silver in Wrestling
On August 6, 2012 in the Olympics games in London, Armenian Greco-Roman wrestler Arsen Julfalakyan won Silver medal. He was up against Russia’s Roman Vlasov in the 74-KG category.
Arsen Julfalakyan was quoted saying:
“Each Olympic medal is a reward for all the years of training. I’m proud of my country. Roman’s victory means he was stronger. Though I wanted gold, I won silver. I will train harder to grab gold next time,”
Roman Vlasov was quoted saying:
“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.
