QĐND – Wednesday, November 24, 2010, 20:33 (GMT+7)

Vietnamese karate martial artist Nguyen Anh scored a silver after defeating opponents from Iran, Taipei (China) and the Republic of Korea to take part in the final match of her division at the 16th Asian Games on November 24.

Anh competed as the defending champion of the Asian Games’ under 50kg event.

Facing Ghasemi Laskou Kalayeh Fetemeh from Iran, she was held to a draw for most of the competing time but succeeded to score 2 successive points in only one minute of extra time.

Anh easily defeated Chen Yen Hui from Taiwan (China) in the quarter-final with a final score of 4-1 and entered the semi-final.

In the early minutes of the semi-final match, Anh played an offensive style and won 2 points to secure a place in the final to compete with Chinese rival Li Hong, who won the championship title at the World Tournament in Serbia in October.

Despite competing very hard at the final, Anh failed to score and lost to 2-0 Hong.

This was also the first medal for the Vietnamese karate team in their first day of competition.

260 Vietnamese athletes to attend ASIAD 2010

QĐND – Wednesday, October 20, 2010, 21:22 (GMT+7)

Of 392 members of the Vietnamese sport delegation to the Asian Games 2010 in Guangzhou, China, there are 260 athletes and the remaining members are officials, doctors, experts and coaches.

The list has surprised many people since the number of athletes was previously scheduled to be 300 people. Non-athlete members are equivalent to one half of the athletes, with 132 people. The group has two German experts and four doctors – three German and one Vietnamese.

The ASIAD organizing board will cover expenditures for 30 Vietnamese athletes. The General Department of Sports and Physical Training will pay airfares for the remaining 352 people. The Golf Vietnam Association and the Hanoi Department of Sports and Physical Training will cover payment for six golfers and four sport dancers.

The General Department of Sports and Physical Training chief Vuong Bich Thang said that some officials will attend ASIAD 2010 to gain experience in order to prepare for hosting ASIAD in the future.

The head of the men’s football squad is the HCM City Football Federation Secretary General Duong Vu Lam. Coach Henrique Calisto and his four assistants will go to Guangzhou with 18 players. The women’s football squad will also go to China with 18 players and the chief Nguyen Trong Giap.

The shooting team has the highest number of members after football, with 22 people, including stars like Nguyen Manh Tuong, Hoang Xuan Vinh and Tran Quoc Cuong.

The wushu team will not have Vu Tra My, Mai Phuong and Thuy Linh because they have got injuries.

The badminton team will have only two representatives, Nguyen Tien Minh and Vu Thi Trang.

There will have only one gymnast – Do Thi Ngan Thuong – in the delegation.

The track-and-field team will not have star Bui Thi Nhung. She will end her career later this year.

The ASIAD 2010 is scheduled to take place in Guangzhou, China from November 12 to November 27. A total of 476 events in 42 sports will be attended by athletes, making it the largest event in history of the Games. It will also be the last one to have presented such big events, as the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) has enforced new hosting rules for future games, beginning with the 2014 Games.

Tuan in battle of nerves at ASIAD

Tuan in battle of nerves at ASIAD

QĐND – Wednesday, October 20, 2010, 21:25 (GMT+7)

While Hoang Anh Tuan won the silver medal for weightlifting in the men’s 56kg class at the last Asian Games, his chances of holding onto a place on the podium at the coming games next month are unclear, especially if he can’t overcome nervousness during competition.

The Olympics silver medal winner overcame the shock of failure at last December’s Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in Laos and promised to do better at the Asian Games in Guangzhou, China.

However, he failed to win a medal at the world weightlifting championship in Turkey last month, despite winning the bronze at the championships in 2007.

This year his rivals include China’s Wu Jingbiao who pocketed the world title after a total lift of 192kg, 19kg more than Tuan.

Second-placed Long Qingquan, who is the Olympics champion, also from China, lifted 188kg. The third major rival is Cha Kum-chol from North Korea who grabbed the bronze medal with a lift of 281kg.

All of them will compete at the Asian Games in Guangzhou.

However, the former Asian champion is still the only weightlifter who can bring home a medal for Viet Nam.

After Tuan’s loss at the world competition, Do Dinh Khang, head of the National Sports Administration’s weightlifting department, said the performance did not reflect Tuan’s real ability.

As Tuan’s coach ahead of the tournament, Khang said his athlete has a real chance of winning a medal despite the recent failures.

But the coach admitted that Tuan had one weakness: nervousness during competition, which had to be better handled. His loss at the SEA Games affected his confidence, according to Khang.

“Tuan became too cautious when choosing weight levels (often lighter than what he could do during practice) but it did not help him,” said Khang. “In my opinion, if he felt free as if he was simply training, his results would be different.”

“In weightlifting, an athlete who proves his better ability, but is not mentally confident, will not be a successful one,” he said.

The Vietnamese xiangqi (Chinese chess) team gathered in early May at the Ho Chi Minh City Sport Training Centre to prepare for the upcoming ASIAD in Guangzhou China from November 12-27.

In the ASIAD 16, the Vietnamese team places high hopes on Ngo Lan Huong in the women’s individual event, who won a gold medal at the 2009 Asian Indoor Games.

Other potential contenders include China, Taiwan and Australia.

On May 28, the national team will compete at the Han Xin Chinese Chess Championships in Jiang Su.
