YEREVAN. – Four athletes will represent Armenia at the World Weightlifting Championships slated for October 16-27 in Wroclaw, Poland.

“All four athletes, who will go to the world championship, are in a great shape. They have no injuries,” head coach Poghos Poghosyan told NEWS.am Sport.

Smbat Margaryan (56 kg), Vanik Avetisyan (69 kg), Ruben Aleksanyan and Hayk Hakobyan (both +105 kg) will represent Armenia.

These are young athletes who must prove they can compete with the best weightlifters, Hakobyan added.

“Our main goal is the next world championship which will be a qualifier to the Olympic Games. Our renowned athletes have minor injuries, therefore they will miss this year to get ready for the next championship,” he resumed.
