Keghart Interview with Gymnast Houry Gebeshian

Born in Cambridge, Mass. in 1989, gymnast Houry Gebeshian is a physician’s assistant in Cleveland, Ohio. She obtained Armenian citizenship in 2010. Due to her strong performance at the first (Glasgow, Scotland) and second round (Rio de Janeiro), she qualified to participate in the Summer Olympics in Rio. Unusual for a gymnast, she has no coach. “I coach myself…I create my own training plans, and diet plans,” she says. At 26, she is ten years older than most of her rivals.

Houry is the only female gymnast representing Armenia at the Rio Olympic Games. She is financing her own bid for a medal. Please support her by clicking onHooting For Houry

Canadian viewers may tune to HDCBC starting at 6:00 pm on Sunday, 8th August to view the race of female gymnasts. —Editor.
