Van Ngoc Tu will compete at the Asian Judo Championships to be held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, from April 26-29.
The Vietnamese athlete will not only defend her bronze medal pocketed here last year, but also hopes to score a higher result in the women's Under-48kg category.
Tu, the only Vietnamese judoka at present to earn a London Olympics berth, will have to face strong rivals from Japan, South Korea and China.
The continental tournament is a wonderful chance for the Soc Trang Province-born athlete to warm up ahead of the summer Games. — VNS
