HA NOI (VNS)  — Viet Nam Glory Award  Swimmer Nguyen Thi Anh Vien will be among 15 individuals to receive the Viet Nam Glory Award 2015 for their excellent performances in various aspects of life.

It is the first time a sports person has been honoured at the annual event.

"Vien is being honoured not only for her achievements, but also for her positive influence on young people that comes from her modesty and determination," said Hoang Lam, head of the organising board.

The awards are being organised by the Viet Nam General Confederation of Labour, the Central Council for Emulation and Reward and Lao Dong (Labour) newspaper.

The awards ceremony will be held on July 28 in Ha Noi, but Vien will not be able to attend as she is training in the US to prepare for the World Championships in Russia early next month. — VNS
