Minutes ago, Armenian weightlifter Ara Khachatryan from the town of Gyumri, failed to advance in the Olympic Games when his best snatch attempt was 165 kilos.
Vardanyan was attempting to advance in the 85 kilo classification of Group B.
Many believe that the failures of Armenia’s weighlifiting Olympic Team must be answered Armenia’s Olympic Committee President Gagik Tsarukyan, men’s team coach Poghos Poghosyan and women’s team coach Artashes Nersisyan.
At the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, three of Armenia’s six weightlifters won bronze medals.
So far in London, three of Armenia's six weightlifters haven’t won anything.
