HA NOI (VNS) — Two Vietnamese athletes will compete at the 2015 IAAF World Youth Athletics Championships at the Estadio Olimpico Pascual Guerrero in Cali, Colombia, today.

They are Le Duc Trung of Thanh Hoa Province and Tran Mai Hanh of Ha Noi.

Trung, who won gold at the 10th Southeast Asia Youth Athletic Championships in Kuala Lumpur in April and a silver medal at the 2015 Asian Youth Athletics Championships in Doha in May, will compete in the men's 2,000m steeplechase.

Hanh will test her skills in the women's 200m.

"Viet Nam has only two representatives in Colombia but we hope Trung will make the final," said coach Nguyen Duc Nguyen.

The event will run until this Sunday. — VNS
