HÀ NỘI — Boxing and traditional martial arts tournament Let’s Viet Championship 2017 is scheduled to be held this month in HCM City.

The traditional martial arts event kicks off on April 23 and the boxing event begins on April 30.

Each event will comprise eight weight categories for both men and women, aged between 18 and 35. Martial artists will compete in knock-out round format.

The championships will be aired live on Let’s Viet (channel VTC9).

The Việt Nam Martial Arts Federation, the Military Martial Arts Federation and the National Sports Administration will coordinate to hold the event.

Although the event has been taking place for only four years, it has contributed many talented athletes to Việt Nam sports, such as Huỳnh Ngọc Tân who won the men’s boxing title for four years in a row, Hà Thị Linh who triumphed in women’s boxing in 2015 and 2016, and Ngũ Thị Thuyết, winner of martial arts in 2015 and 2016. — VNS
