HA NOI (VNS) — Top Vietnamese swimming players Hoang Quy Phuoc and Nguyen Thi Anh Vien won gold medals in the second Southeast Asian (SEA) Swimming Championships in Singapore yesterday.
Phuoc finished first in the men's 200 meter free style, while Vien won in the women's 400 meter free style.
At the same event held in Singapore in 2012, Vien had won five gold medals and Phuoc had only managed to get one silver.
At last year's 27th SEA Games in Myanmar, Vien who had returned home after training in the United States won three gold medals and Phuoc won one gold medal.
Vien is the first Vietnamese swimmer to win a berth to participate in the 400 meter medley event at the World Swimming Championships in Russia in 2015.— VNS
