YEREVAN (Panorama.am) — The junior Armenian chess players gained impressive results at European Individual Chess Championship 2017 held at Minsk, Belarus.

“Haik Martirosyan, Aram Hakobyan, Artur Davtyan and Arman Mikaelyan fulfilled grandmaster norm. It is quite a great achievement to fulfill that norm at such a young age,” Mikayel Andreasyan, General Secretary of the Chess Federation of Armenia, said at a press conference on Monday.
