In the snatch event, Vinh successfully lifted three registered weight classes of 130 kg, 134 kg, and 136 kg, beating his rival by one kilogram.

Unfortunately, the weightlifter failed to pull off lifts of 165 kg and 166 kg in the clean and jerk.

With this result, Vinh has disappointingly missed out on qualification for a place at the upcoming ASIAD 2018.
