YEREVAN. – Armenia’s main events were not athletic but psychological. Armenians have not paid such an attention to football for a long time. As a result of successful performances of the Armenian football team, people have been pronouncing the names of Henrich Mkhitaryan and Yura Movsisyan, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said.

Head of the Armenian National Olympic Committee Gagik Tsarukyan said that the athletes spared power for the upcoming London-2012 Olympic Games.

However, the President did not share Tsarukyan’s view adding that Armenia registered a successful year by the splendid results of the Armenia’s football team and Men Chess Team.
