Next Pan-Armenian Games might go pro
YEREVAN, AUGUST 17, ARMENPRESS. The next Pan-Armenian Games can potentially be organized on a professional level, Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia Tigran Avinyan told reported today.
“The idea behind the Pan-Armenian Games both in old Armenia and new Armenia has been the same: it contained the idea of unity of Armenia, Diaspora and Artsakh, and I think this idea was very vivid during the opening of this Pan-Armenian Games which was held in Stepanakert, in Artsakh. It was a very impressive opening, and the Games proceeded very successfully, so successful that we are considering to organize the next Games not only on the amateur but also professional level,” he said.
Around 5000 athletes from 35 countries are participating in the 7th Pan-Armenian Games.
