NDO – After more than two months of hiatus as the players joined their national teams, football pitches across the country were brought to life again last weekend matches with the 17th round of the 2017 V-League.
(Sep 11, 2017)
NDO – Vietnam’s football team earned their first victory at the 2019 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup qualification on September 5 after beating hosts Cambodia 2-1 during their third Group C match in Phnom Penh.
NDO – The Vietnam sports delegation has set a target of a top-three place in the overall medal tally at the 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games (AIMAG), which will be held from September 17 to 27 in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.
NDO – The 29th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games has wrapped up in perfect fashion for the Vietnam sporting delegation, with their athletes successfully reaching the target set before the day of departure. Notably, 90% of Vietnam’s 58 gold medals won in Kuala Lumpur were in Olympic events, which could be considered a great success for Vietnamese sport, as it is currently on a path to escape the “local pond” – SEA Games – and rise towards the Asian and Olympic levels.

NDO – Following Thach Kim Tuan’s 56kg gold medal in the morning, the weightlifting team went on to add another title to Vietnam’s medal collection in Malaysia, as Trinh Van Vinh took the top honour and broke two SEA Games records in the tense 62kg competition this afternoon.
NDO – It is possible that Vietnam’s position on the medal standings of the 29th SEA Games will change, either higher or lower compared to the current third-place ranking, as the Games conclude on August 30. However, it is no longer an issue of much significance, as the Vietnamese sport has been continuously consistent on their present path with a lot of hopes: rising to the continental level and advancing into the Olympic arena.
NDO – With a total lift of 269kg, Thach Kim Tuan defeated the Indonesian competitor by two kilograms to bring home the first weightlifting gold medal for Vietnam at the ongoing 29th SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
