Armenia’s taekwondoist Arman Yeremyan will face Canada’s Sebastien Michaud in the preliminary round of the men’s 80 kilogram category.
Taekwondo competitions will kick off on August 8. Arman Yeremyan will start competing on August 10 at 2:45 p.m. Yerevan time.
Yeremyan is the first Armenian taekwondoist to qualify for the Olympics.
“My sole objective is the Olympic gold [medal]. Such tournaments demand maximum concentration of strength from the athletes. Whoever is psychologically better prepared for important competitions becomes the winner. Everyone is equally trained technically in such tournaments. [But] Psychological preparedness will play a great role,” Arman said before leaving for London.
