HA NOI (VNS) – Vietnamese cyclists have been in intensive training in Da Lat for nearly two weeks in preparation for the coming Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar.
"Da Lat is a suitable destination for training as its terrain is similar with the SEA Games routes and the cool weather will help my athletes improve their volume of red blood cells, which are good for them when competing with high intensity," said coach Huy Hung.
The team of 11 athletes will compete in six categories and is targeting at least one gold medal.
At the last Games in Indonesia in 2011, Viet Nam pocketed one gold in the women's cross country event, courtesy Dinh Thi Nhu Quynh.
They will fly to HCM City on December 7 and travel to Myanmar the next day. – VNS
