HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam's foremost female swimmer Nguyen Thi Anh Vien has left for the United States to continue her long-term training session, which will cost US$200,000.
The expenses will be borne by the National Sports Administration and her Military Club.
Vien will train at the Saint Augustine Centre in Florida under the guidance of coach Cray Anthony Teeters, a member of the Gator Club, where the world's leading swimmers have trained, such as Ryan Lochte and Elizabeth Beisel.
The Can Tho Province-born swimmer aims to win at least four gold medals this year at the upcoming Southeast Asian Games in Singapore and achieve an A Standard to represent the country at the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics. — VNS
