HA NOI (VNS)—Viet Nam's archery team will receive strong support from South Korea, helping ensure future successes.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the development of Viet Nam's archery was signed yesterday between the Viet Nam Sports Administration, Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction Korea and Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction Viet Nam in Ha Noi.
The six-year commitment includes exchanges and periodic competitions between Vietnamese and Doosan club's coaches and players.
"This will help us win medals at future tournaments, including the 17th and 18th Asian Games in 2014 and 2019," said Vuong Bich Thang, head of Sports Administration.
Doosan officials yesterday also donated four sets of hi-tech bows worth VND200 million (US$9,500) to their Vietnamese partners.
Doosan's six-member archery team, established in 1994, is the best in Korea. Many athletes have won world and Olympic medals. — VNS
