Sofia: Armenian Greco-Roman wrestlers to start campaign for Olympic qualification

Greco-Roman wrestlers will start competing Sunday at the final qualification tournament, in the Bulgarian capital Sofia, for the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Armenia's Armen Melikyan (60 kg), Karen Aslanyan (67 kg), Artur Shahinyan (87 kg), and Davit Ovasapyan (130 kg) will compete for Olympic spots.

But only the finalists in the Sofia tournament will qualify for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
