Armenian Gov to sponsor Aronian
$133,000 to prepare for World Cup
It must be nice to be Levon Aronian. Superstar in his native Armenia, adored by millions, recognized where ever he goes. Yesterday the Armenian government took the unprecedented step to agree to finance Aronian’s participation in the 2019 World Cup.
No other sportsman has ever been awarded such support. Let’s hope Levon does his country well and wins the World Cup!
