At the end of December last year, a solemn ceremony of awarding the best athletes of Armenia in 2021 took place, during which the Prime Minister of the Republic Nikol Pashinyan awarded the athletes and thanked them for their outstanding achievements, noting that in 2021 the Armenian society especially needed victories.

Yezidi wrestler Malkhaz Amoyan also entered the list of the top 10 athletes of the country. In 2021, in Oslo (Norway), Amoyan became the world champion in Greco-Roman wrestling. The athlete dedicated his victory to the Yezidi and Armenian peoples. "I see how happy they are about my victory. I will try to do my best in the upcoming tournaments to keep the honor of the two peoples high," Malkhas added.

The prize fund of the contest "10 best athletes of the year" is 50 million drams (about 100 thousand dollars). Each athlete who entered the top ten will receive 4 million drams, and 1 million will be given to members of their coaching staff.
