Stepanyan’s coach Armen Gyozalyan told Mediamax Sport that the tournament will take place in Portugal on December 15-17 and offer qualification points for the World championship.
“Edgar ranks at 25 now. If he performs well and earns points in Anadia, if we can reach 1100 points, we’ll be able to breathe freely. I have to note, we’ve never been this close to qualifying for the World championship,” said Gyozalyan.
Stepanyan remarked his training is going well and he works hard to succeed again. “The silver medal I won in the World Cup is very motivational. I keep working to gain points, as I have a huge desire to compete in the World championship,” stated the athlete.
