National Heroes

Chess is national sport in Armenia and Georgia. You can understand how delighted the public in Armenia was after their boys have won Olympiad Gold. Armenian government has decided to award six players and coach Arshak Petrosian with $18.000 USD each. (This is huge amount in that poor country). Arshak is also Peter Leko's coach and father in law.
