The first Vovinam Championships in the northern region concluded at Trinh Hoai Duc sports hall in Hanoi on December 12.

Hanoi won the championship title  with 7 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze medals. It was followed by Yen Bai with 3 golds and 2 silvers and Tuyen Quang with 3 golds and 2 bronzes.

The event was organised by Hanoi’s Vovinam Federation and the city’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

It attracted 268 players from 23 cities and provinces in the northern region, competing for 38 sets of medals from December 10.

Vovinam originated in Hanoi in 1938, and was established by martial arts instructor Nguyen Loc. In 1954, Vovinam spread to the southern region, then later to the rest of the country and the world.

Now Vovinam is a major event at the Asian Indoor Games and SEA Games.
