Sport and Recreation Complexes in Yerevan: Sports in Armenia

Armenia has a very rich sports history. Both being a part of the former Soviet Union, and competing under the flag of an independent state, the Armenian athletes repeatedly won numerous medals in various sports.

The Armenian nation has always been distinguished for its exceptional intellectuality. It is no accident that the most popular, and as it can safely be argued, the national sport of Armenia is chess. Armenia gave the world such brilliant grandmasters and champions like Tigran Petrosian, Garry Kasparov, Levon Aronian, Vladimir Akopian. Armenian chess players, performing under the flag of an independent and free state, became the champions of Europe in 1999, and later in 2006, the team headed by Levon Aronian won the Chess Olympiad in Turin. In 2011, Armenia once again won the World Chess Championship. A year later, in 2012 during the next Chess Olympiad in Istanbul, the “golden team” became the champion for the 3rd time. Today, the sport is encouraged at the governmental level: chess is even included in the school curriculum, targeting on the development of the sport from school.

Second place by popularity and the number of champions take the Greco-Roman wrestling and weightlifting. During the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Artur Aleksanyan won the long-awaited gold in Greco-Roman wrestling. Boxing is also extremely popular in Armenia. Vic Darchinyan and Arthur Abraham have won international fame, repeatedly becoming champions in different weight categories and championships.

Football in Armenia is honoured no less than in any other country, despite the fact that the team of independent Armenia is not successful in this sport. The most famous Armenian football player and part-time captain of the national team is Henrikh Mkhitaryan who is successfully building his career on the international football scene. Mkhitaryan once played in the German Borussia Dortmund team, and now he is playing as a midfielder for the prestigious and world-famous English club Manchester United.
