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.

The team will include 6 male and 5 female players, coached by Hoang Dinh Hong and Le Thien Vi.

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.
