3 people.

Arsen Julfalakyan took gold in Greco-Roman 74kg class to earn Armenia
the first medal in the first day of 2007 Junior World Wrestling
Championships here on Tuesday.

Julfalakyan easily defeated Elvin Mursaliyev from Azerbaijan in
the final with 2-0 (6-0,2-1). The bronze medal is shared by Dmytro
Arabadzhy from Ukraine and Latvia wrestler V. Aleksandrs.

China was so close to their first medal that Xin Xiaowei fought
against Aleksandrs for the bronze. But he lost the match 0-2 (0-5,
1-1) and only got 5th place.

"Watching matches from other wrestlers make me realize my
disadvantages. I learnt a lot in these championships," said Xin after
the loss.
It's a custom of the human condition for the masses to remain ignorant. It's what they do. In fact, that IS how "the peace" is kept. Whatever democracy we have here is a spectator's sport.
