HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội won their first gold medal at the National Petanque Team Championship after years of waiting on Sunday.
Hanoians topped the podium in the two mens and one womens event, beating Trà Vinh 13-5 in the final at the ongoing tournament in Sóc Trăng Province.
Earlier they won bronze in the women’s team category.
Head of Hà Nội Petanque Club Đặng Xuân Vui said it was a big step for the capital’s athletes. It would be a strong foundation so that his players could receive more support for titles at the Southeast Asian Games next year and the National Sports Games in 2018.
The championship will continue with the two women’s and one men’s event. — VNS
