Armenia made its Summer Olympic debut in 1996 and subsequently after, though they previously competed under the Soviet flag before their independence. The nation sends athletes across at least a half-dozen number of sports with their largest coming from weightlifting and wrestling. They are also usually present in other combat sports.
Armenia has medaled 14 times across three different sports: boxing (1 medal), weightlifting (5 medals) and wrestling (8 medals). They have also medaled at every Olympic appearance with the exception of 2004. Wrestling, more specifically Greco-Roman wrestling has been a huge source of medals, including their two golds for Armenia. Their most successful athlete was wrestler Artur Aleksanyan whom won a gold and a bronze (2012-2016).
