Rio Olympics is over, but Armenian fans still hope that Greco-Roman style wrestler Mihran Harutyunyan will get back the gold medal he lost because of the referee’s mistake.

Olympic silver medalist Mihran Harutyunyan: I am grateful to the coaches and the whole nation for their support. I congratulate Artur one more time. Both of us had hard times. I am grateful to you all. I don’t believe that the court will decide in my favor and give back the gold. I just believe that this action will help prevent such mistakes in the future, and wins will not be taken from our team.

Mihran’s coach in Armenia Samvel Gevorgyan: Mihran Harutyunyan prepared well for the Olympic Games and won titled competitors in Rio. There were no mistakes at this Olympics; his victory was simply handed over to the Serbian wrestler.
