By Lusine Shahbazyan

YEREVAN. – We must be able to maintain these titles and add the Olympic gold to them.

Armenia Greco-Roman wrestling national team coach Samvel Gevorgyan told the aforesaid to NEWS.am Sport.

There are feeling of pride and joy, the experience of enjoyable and unforgettable moments, since we [Armenia] had to do with solely second and third places for many years. This [triumph] was one of our most cherished dreams; we had two world champions at the same time.

[But] every one of our guys could have won a gold medal at the world championship; everyone had these chances.

We will begin our [training] camps in December. We must continue like this until the Olympic Games.

I see Arsen Julfalakyan and Artur Aleksanyan with the title of Olympic champions,” Gevorgyan specifically said.

The Armenian national wrestling team won two gold medals at the 2014 Wrestling World Championships that were held in Tashkent, the capital city of Uzbekistan. Accordingly, Greco-Roman wrestlers Arsen Julfalakyan (75 kg) and Artur Aleksanyan (98 kg) were crowned world champions for the first time.
