LONDON, July 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has congratulated Arsen Galstyan, the first Russian gold medal winner at the Olympic Games in London.
"We have the first gold. Judo. Arsen Galstyan. Well done," the premier wrote on Twitter.
Galstyan won the first gold medal for the Russian team on the first day of the Olympics in the 60kg judo competition, beating Hiroaki Hiraoka (Japan) in the final.
The Head of the Republic of Adygeya, Aslan Tkhakushinov, also congratulated Galstyan, who started his sport career in the republic.
It is worth mentioning that in the summer of 2000 in Sydney shooter Sergei Alifirenko from Adygeya won the first Olympic gold for the Russian team. The two sportsmen were born in Armenia and achieved their Olympic victories after training in Adygeya and the Krasnodar Territory.
