Pencak silat was played at the Asian Games (ASIAD) for the first time ever in 2018. Vietnamese martial artist Trần Đình Nam, 26, brought home a gold medal. He met Khalid Mohd Rauzi from Malaysia, who beat Nam in the finals of the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games last year, again in the men’s tanding under-75kg final. This time, nothing prevented Nam from taking the gold. Thanh Nga talks to Nam.
