HA NOI —Teenager swimmer Nguyen Thi Anh Vien will compete in eight events at the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in Myanmar next month.

Vien's campaign at the Games would amount to a new record for the London Olympian and Viet Nam.

After undergoing stringent training and competing in the US, Vien is optimistic she will be in top physical condition to compete across the record number of events. The Olympian stands her strongest chances of seizing gold in the 200m backstroke and 400m medley events.

The Can Tho City-born athlete is the current SEA Games' record holder in the 200m backstroke with a time of 2min 12.75sec; and the 400m medley she clocked at 4:47.60.— VNS
