Armenia national anthem played in “honor” of Azerbaijan athlete

An unforeseen event occurred during a medal ceremony at the Youth and Juniors European Sambo Championships being held in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Accordingly, Armenia’s national anthem was played after Azerbaijani athlete Kamran Askarov had received gold medal in the 62 kg category.

But the error was rectified several minutes later.

To note, Armenia’s Volodya Sargsyan came second in this weight class.
