Rio 2016: Armenia wins 4 medals, finishes 42nd in medal count

Armenia fetched four medals at 31st Summer Olympic Games in Rio and came in 42nd among 206 countries in the medal count.

Greco Roman wrestler Arthur Alexanian (98 kg) won the first gold medal for Armenia after a 20-year break.

Armenia was deprived of a second gold medal after a biased decision of the arbiter in the men’s 66 kg Greco-Roman wrestling final. The Serb wrestler was given the gold, while Armenia’s Migran Arutyunyan won a silver medal.

Weightlifters Simon Martirosyan (105 kg) and Gor Minasyan (+105 kg) both fetched silver medals.
