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.
