YEREVAN.- A weightlifter must think only about lifting the bar in order not to divert attention to something else, member of the Armenian weightlifting team said.
Hayk Hakobyan,22, will represent Armenia at the European Weightlifting Championship to be held in Tirana.
“It is my third championship. The first was not successful. Now, I am prepared well,” Hakobyan said in an interview with NEWS.am Sport.
He said the most important thing is to follow coach’s advice, fulfill the task and avoid injuries.
“I hope to lift 410-415 kilos in snatch, clean & jerk. I hope to win gold and will fight to be the first,” he said.
