Olympic champion Armen Nazaryan thinks about comeback

18:31, 06.02.2012 Region: Armenia

Olympic Greco-Roman wrestling champion Armen Nazaryan is thinking about return to the competition.

In an interview with Bulgarian Tema Sport, Nazaryan said he had not made final decision but is training to lose some kilograms.

“So if I improve my shape, I’ll probably compete in the 66kg category at the Olympic qualifications in April,” Reuters quotes the sportsman.

Armen Nazaryan, Armenian by origin, first won gold in Atlanta representing the Republic of Armenia. Later he moved to Bulgaria and took up Bulgarian citizenship. He won gold at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games and bronze in Athens in 2004.
