Armenia

History

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).
