Before Covid-19: Hrachik Babayan

Photo: from personal archive

We are fighting the coronavirus with good memories of the time we spent with friends and family.

Today, this important mission lies on the shoulders of silver medalists of Youth Olympics Hrachik Babayan. He has told Mediamax Sport about a very special day.

This photo was made during the opening ceremony of Rio Olympics in 2016.

My first time at the Olympics, it left unforgettable impression on me.

I am certain everyone who competed then now carries special memories about the Rio Olympics, memories that will never be repeated.

Team photos make the majority of pictures we took in Rio, but this one, with boxers Narek Abgaryan and Hovhannes Bachkov, is a particularly happy photo. I challenge Narek to carry on and be the next athlete to show a picture from before COVID-19.
