HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam won four golds on the first day of competition at the Jujitsu International Federation World Cup Beach 2022, on June 23 on Jomtien Beach, Pattaya, Thailand.

SEA Games champion Đào Hồng Sơn made the most remarkable victories with all three wins by submission in the men's U56kg.

"It was a hard-working day. But the result was so sweet, with three submission wins. Thank you for watching and encouraging me," Sơn posted on his Facebook page.
