HÀ NỘI — Fifty amateur shooters will participate in a competition organised at Hà Nội’s Miếu Môn Shooting Range on Saturday.

Athletes will take part in precision pistol and trap individual and team competitions, two categories at the Southeast Asian Games in 2011 and 2015.

While Việt Nam’s Lê Nghĩa won a gold medal in trap in Singapore two years ago, the country’s not had any shooters competing in the precision pistol category yet.

Saturday’s tournament is among one of the activities organised to promote shooting as a popular sport following the success of marksman Hoàng Xuân Vinh in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. — VNS
