Armenian weightlifter in 69 kg category Arakel Mirzoyan’s mood and spirit are very high, he told NEWS.am Sport on Tuesday prior to his performance at 10.00 p.m. on Yerevan time.

He is the winner of European Youth Championships (2008), World Youth Championships silver medalist (2008), World Student Games silver medalist (2008), European champion (2009), and World Championship silver medalist (2009). In 2010 Mirzoyan changed his category and started to perform in 77 kg, however, he will participate in the Olympics in 69 kg category.

In response to whether he is tense, Mirzoyan said that he is not tense and he is focused only to make Armenian people and his family happy on the day. His performance also puts some responsibility on him, as the Armenian national has not won any medals yet.
