/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Armenian figure skater Sargis Hayrapetyan came 31st
at the World Junior Figure Skating Championship that was held in Sofia,
Bulgaria, from Feb. 23 to Mar. 1, Samvel Khatchatryan, President of
the Figure Skating Federation of Armenia told PanARMENIAN.Net.

"Sargis Hayrapetyan is the 31st among 42 participants. To be honest,
we have to accept the result as satisfactory, since we can't expect
better results. As you know, Hayrapetyan and Stamboultyan have
been trained in Moscow because of absence of training facilities in
Armenia. Such a nomadic manner of training can't produce favorable
results. So we have to content ourselves with what we have. As for
Armine, she had poor success this time," Samvel Khatchatryan said.
