In May 23-28, 2018 Greta Vardanyan, Pyunic’s athlete participated in the European para-powerlifting championship in Berck-Sur-Mer, France. Grate’s participation became possible due to the support of EU delegation in Armenia, through the project “Promoting the Social Rights of Persons with Disabilities by Building the Capacities of Armenian Civil Society Organisations to Engage with Council of Europe Monitoring Mechanisms” implemented by “Pyunic” and its international partner “ACCESS”. Greta’s participation in this championship was very important as it is a qualification event before Tokyo 2020 Summer Paralympic Games.
170 participants from 33 countries participated in the event. In 61 kg class category Greta was placed the 4th among European participants.
