Armenian Greco-Roman wrestlers to succeed in London Olympics

Arsen Julfalakyan was the first to be qualified for the London Olympics in the Armenia’s Greco-Roman wrestling team, followed by Arthur Alexanyan and Yuri Patrikeyev.

“Julfalakyan and Patrikeyev are both good ‘fighters.’ They will not yield till the last second. To success, an athlete should be not only be physically powerful but also to have a powerful soul,” the trainer of Julfalakyan and Patrikeyev Samvel Grigoryan said in an interview with NEWS.am Sport.

As for their personal characteristics, Julfalakyan is an athlete of high intellect and an individual, while Patrikeyev got very easily adapted in Armenia. He, being an experienced athlete, listens, however, to every instruction.

“It is already a success that both of them will perform in the Olympics. I believe that Arsen and Yuri will succeed in London and I do believe they will win gold,” the trainer said.
