Swimmer Vien voted top athlete at American junior tourney

NASA's No 1 athlete Nguyen Thi Anh Vien

CAN THO (VNS) — Vietnamese Nguyen Thi Anh Vien has been voted the No 1 athlete at the NASA Junior National Championship Cup held in Florida, the US.

Vien, an invited athlete, won four gold and two silver medals in the girls' 17-18 year-old group.

Coach Dang Anh Tuan said the tournament was a test to review Vien's training after her two-month work here.

He said Vien has developed a good momentum that might help her win at the Incheon 17th Asian Games this September.

The Can Tho Province-born athlete will next compete in the Arena Grand Prix at Charlotte, North Carolina in May and the Nanjing Youth Olympics in China in August. — VNS
