High hopes for Vietnam swimmers at the 28th SEA Games

(VOV) - With just over a month to the 28th Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games), Vietnamese swimmers are kicking into high gear as they pack their bags for training and competition tours in the US and Japan in the lead up to the big battle.

Vietnam’s top female swimmer Nguyen Thi Anh Vien is participating in training courses in the US and has recently received accolades at the 2015 US National Swimming Championships and 2015 Arena Pro Series in Mesa Arizona.

All of the swimmers have high hopes for medals and have signed up to compete in 10 events, with the coaches optimistic that Vien has an excellent chance of winning six gold medals at the competition.

Meanwhile, a group of male swimmers including Hoang Quy Phuoc, Tran Duy Khoi, Lam Quang Nhat and Huynh The Vi are also training hard.

Quy Phuoc has won two consecutive gold medals at the SEA Games 2011 and 2013 and is now taking part in training courses in Japan to improve his technique and physique.
