They said nothing at all about our delegation on NBC as they walked in.

allright... now the real fun begins..

Sunday, August 6th Schedule. (In Los Angeles time)

AROUND 7:00AM. BOXING - MEN'S 49KG - ARTUR HOVHANNISYAN lost to SAMUEL CARMONA HERREDIA (ESP)

AROUND 7:00AM. JUDO - MEN'S 60KG. HOVHANNES DAVTYAN defeated LUDVIG PAISCHER (AUT)
based on the latest World Ranking lists for 60kg in Judo, Davtyan is ranked 20th in the world, while Paischer is 27th. Davtyan should win this first match, although Paischer was the Silver Medalist at the olympic games in 2008. Should Davtyan advance the first 2 rounds, he will be facing the best Judoka in the weight category in the World (Korean Kim Won Jin.)
AROUND 8:15AM. JUDO - HOVHANNES DAVTYAN lost to BESLAN MUDRANOV (RUS) in round of 16.
Will be a tough fight, always is against Russian athletes.


10:30AM - GYMNASTICS - MEN'S POMMEL HORSE AND VAULT - QUALIFICATION 2 - HARUTYUN MERDINYAN AND ARTUR DAVTYAN
Both of these guys actually have a shot of getting out of Qualification and into the finals. Merdinyan is actually one of the best in the world on the Pommel Horse, let's see how he does. Davtyan will only compete in the Vault, and he's okay... won a Silver medal at the European championships on the Vault while Merdinyan won Gold on the Pommel Horse.

AROUND 1:45PM. BOXING - MEN'S 69KG. VLADIMIAR MARGARYAN vs WINSTON HILL (FIJ)
Margaryan should easily win this bout since Winston Hill was an Olympic invite. In the next round Margaryan will be facing Roniel Iglesias of Cuba which will be a tough bout.

I wonder if it is possible to watch these games as I doubt NBC will cover our athletes.

by the way.. Judo - Hovhannes Davtyan just annihilated the Austrian opponent, and will be facing the Russian in the next round. Took like 30 seconds for him to tap the opponent out.

Harutyun Merdinyan just nailed his Pommel Horse routine.... 4th place overall. top 8 make the finals. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Artur Davtyan also did VERY well on the Vault... 6th place overall. top 8 make the finals. 2 of 3 rotations have been completed, the 3rd rotation comes in a couple of hours. We'll find out if Davtyan and Merdinyan will make the final if the athletes in the 3rd rotation don't bump them out of the top 8. I think Merdinyan is a safe bet, but Davtyan is right on the border line.

Artur Davtyan will finish outside of the top 8, and wont make it to the final round. Hartyun Merdinyan is still holding the 4th place and is pretty much a lock to make the final. Men's Pommel Horse final will be next Sunday the 14th.

Recap of Day 1

Gymnastics - Harutyun Merdinyan placed 4th on the pommel horse and advanced to the finals which will take place next Sunday the 14th. He really has a shot at getting a medal. 1st and 2nd place in qualification were the Brits who Harutyun beat for the gold medal at the European championships earlier this year. According to the coach he's going to go with a more difficult routine in the finals... if he nails it, watch out.

Artur Davtyan finished in 11th place and didn't qualify for the finals on the Vault. He did really well on his first vault, then really stumbled off the platform on the landing on his second and just narrowly missed a chance for the finals.

Judo - Hovhannes Davtyan - 60kg - won his first bout and lost the second one to the Russian opponent who ended up winning the Gold.

Boxing - Artur Hovhannisyan - 49kg - lost his opening bout to the Spanish opponent.

Upcoming on Day 2

Gymnastics - Houry Gebeshian will compete in all 4 Gymnastics exercises. She's in subdivision 2 which will start at 7:30am Los Angeles time. She's not expected to advanced past the qualification phase. (By the way she's from the USA (Cleveland) and is the first female gymnast to represent Armenia at the Olympic games.)

Boxing - Vladimir Margaryan - 69kg - will fight in his first bout against the opponent from Fiji. Bout will take place around 2:00pm

One of Gebeshian's competitors is a Russian-Armenian girl, no?
