Armenia’s ‘super Sunday’ moment at London 2012 - Finally!!

After pretty dismal start of London 2012 by Armenia sports-men and -women, with quite a few nil points out there, after the fashion fail during Olympics opening ceremony, with that horrific long white scarfs & more [but I like AM sports outfits], finally... Today is a ‘super Sunday' for Armenia at London 2012.

Arsen Julfalakyan won silver medal in wrestling, becoming - as BBC commentary puts it - the first ever pair father/son Olympic medalists in wrestling [Arsen's father - Levon Julfalakyan is a renown Olympic champion].

One more medal for Armenia - bronze - was won by awesome Hripsime Khurshudyan in weightlifting. BBC complimented Hripsime, calling her a "fabulous technician".
