GM Levon Aronian Named 'Man of the Year' by Armenia Magazine 'De Factor'

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

“De Factor” magazine has named Armenian Grandmaster Levon Aronian “Man of the Year.”

“I’m very grateful, this is a great honor for my,” Aronian said, speaking at the award ceremony. “As sportsmen, we are more used to receiving awards after victories,” he added.

Aronain says he always tries not to think about the nationality of his opponent. “I think there are no hostile nations. Simply, there are bad people in every nation.”
