In the first day of competition, karatedo martial artists bagged two golds in the kata (performance) events for single women and men’s team and two silvers in the same events for single men and women’s team.


Also in the day, the table-tennis team surpassed Malaysian and Myanmar rivals in the qualifying round to berth a place in the next round and the beach volleyball team defeated Singaporean team 2-nil.


The Vietnamese team with two golds and two silvers is standing first in the medal tally, while Indonesia and Laos are runners-up. The host Thailand is ranked fourth with two bronzes, followed by Malaysia.


The AUG-15 will last until Dec. 23. The Vietnamese team competes in eight out of 17 sporting events, including athletics, pencak silat, football, swimming, table tennis, Taekwondo, karatedo and beach volleyball.


Besides sports competition, the students will also join in exchanges and tours to boost the mutual understanding between students of ASEAN countries.
