Armenian National Olympic Committee Chairman pledges €700,000 – L’Équipe

In its section entitled “Olympic Games,” the renowned French magazine L’Équipe focused on Armenian National Olympic Committee (ANOC) Chairman Gagik Tsarukyan’s promise that Armenia’s Olympic champion in the 2012 London Games will be awarded 700,000 euros.  

Also, the Government of Armenia has set aside 80,000 euros and the ANOC, 40,000 euros, in this connection.

To note, before the 2008 Beijing Games, Gagik Tsarukyan had pledged US$ 1 million to the Olympic champion.  

The French magazine also recalls that Armenia competes in the Olympics as a country ever since 1996.
