Posted on September. 20. 2019
Armenian athlete Galstyan (63 kg), who conquered a bronze medal at the 2019 World Wrestling Championships underway in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan, spoke about his victory and bouts in an interview to the Armenian National Olympic Committee’s press service.
“Thanks a lot to everybody and especially to my coaches and friends. I’ll try to win higher medals in the future,” he said.
The first bout with Azerbaijani wrestler Elmar Mukhtarov was the toughest for the Armenian athlete.
“The first bout is always the toughest but the second bout wasn’t easy either, there were a few seconds left and I was losing but I managed to bring back my points and win,” he noted.
In the semifinal bout with Russia’s Stepan Maryanyan the Armenian wrestler made some mistakes and besides the judges’ sympathy was on his rivals side.
“I made mistakes too, I can’t deny it but the judges helped him too,” Slavik Galstyan concluded.
In the fight for a bronze medal Slavik Galstyan defeated Iran’s Meysam Dalkhani 7-5.
