Vietnamese top badminton athletes Nguyễn Tiến Minh and Vũ Thị Trang have attracted special attention at the ongoing Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Việt Nam’s Nguyễn Tiến Minh beat Vladimir Malkov of Russia 2-1 (15-21, 21-9, 21-13) in a Group E match at the Rio Olympics yesterday.
Vietnamese badminton player Nguyễn Tiến Minh said he may surprise those attending the Rio Olympics, in his response to recent rumours that minimized his chances against Chinese Lin Dan in their coming meet.
Vietnamese Nguyễn Tiến Minh is in a difficult group at the Rio Olympics after a badminton draw which was organised on July 26 in Brazil.
The Yonex-Sunrise Vietnam Open 2016, commencing next week, might be the last international event in which national number one badminton player Nguyễn Tiến Minh will play on the home ground.
