The history of Panarmenian Games
The games were founded on April 30, 1997 as the brainchild of Soviet diplomat Ashot Melik-Shahnazaryan. Ashot originally conceived of the games during the 60's but didn't have the opportunity to act on his dreams until 1995. The first games were held from August 28th 1999 to September 5th 1999. The games were a wild success and the second Pan-Armenian games were held in 2001. The third games were held in 2003 and the fourth in 2007. The fifth Panarmenian Games is set up to be a great event that shouldn't be missed.
