Artur Aleksanyan Wins Gold At European Wrestling Championship For 5th Time.

Armenian Greco-Roman wrestlers on Wednesday won three medals, including two gold and one bronze, at the 2020 European Championships underway in Rome, Italy.

Artur Aleksanyan (97 kg) clinched the gold medal after taking a 7-1 win over Nikoloz Kakhelashvili in the final bout, the National Olympic Committee reported. The Armenian athlete won his fifth European title.

Gevorg Gharibyan (60 kg) beat Turkey’s Kerem Kamal 5-5 to claim the European champion’s title. The bout ended in a draw, but preference was given to the Armenian wrestler for performing a more complex trick.

Meanwhile, wrestler Karen Aslanyan (67 kg) won a bronze medal after defeating his rival from Hungary 7-5.

Earlier another Armenian wrestler Karapet Chalyan had also won a bronze at the European Championships.
