ASEAN enjoys half century of dynamic, comprehensive development (Source: asean.org) Hanoi (VNA) – After 50 years of development, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has been internationally recognised as a comprehensive regional cooperative organisation and a cohesive and dynamic political-economic entity that contributes to global connectivity. The association has an important role and position in the Southeast Asian and Asian-Pacific regions with profound political, economic, cultural and social influences.  A spirit of solidarity, consensus and mutual support and respect, along with harmonious combination of national and community interests have helped enhance the association’s position. Over the past half century, ASEAN has proved itself a leading factor in ensuring a peaceful environment, security and cooperation for regional development, illustrated through the bloc’s efforts to cooperate in politics and security and build codes of conduct to increase mutual understanding and prevent conflicts in the region. ASEAN has also established collaboration with important partners in the world, while initiating and playing a key role in several regional cooperation frameworks, especially the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) – the only mechanism for dialogues and cooperation in political and security matters in Asia-Pacific. The association has created favourable conditions for important partners outside Southeast Asia to contribute to the settlement of common security challenges, helping reinforce peace and security in the region.   [Sport event celebrates ASEAN’s founding anniversary] More countries around the world have shown interest in Southeast Asia.

My players beat Thailand on Thai ground. This win is dedicated to all the Vietnamese fans,” coach Vu Hong Viet said to the media at Noi Bai International Airport. "There is no secret to the Vietnam team’s success, but it was my players’ confidence that worked. During the training sessions, before and after every match, I would often tell them ’the training board believes in you, and you will take the title, although your rival is Thailand’,” Viet said. "The confidence and focus helped Vietnam develop their fitness, as well as improved their skill and raised their spirits during the match, and they triumphed in the tournament meritoriously,” Viet added. The score at the end of the official 80 minutes match was 0-0. Vietnam was never over-awed by the occasion, and they took on the confident Thais blow by blow.

Kim In-Kyung of South Korea hits her drive on the fourth hole during the fourth and final round of the Marathon Classic. (Michael Cohen/Getty Images/AFP) Kim, ranked 28th, fired a bogey-free eight-under par 63 at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania, Ohio, to finish 72 holes on 21-under par 263. "I really didn't expect anything. Maybe that's why I played really well today," Kim said. "Really good names were on top of the leaderboard and I just wanted to go out and make the most out of it and today I was able to do that." It was the second triumph in as many months for Kim, who captured last week's ShopRite LPGA Classic. She has also taken three European Ladies Tour events, including her second triumph in three years at last September's Ladies European Masters. American Lexi Thompson birdied three of the last four holes to grab second on 267 with a closing 66, with American Gerina Piller and Taiwan's Chien Pei-Yun sharing third on 269. US 18-year-old rookie Nelly Korda, the daughter of retired Czech tennis star Petr Korda, owned the 54-hole lead but stumbled to a final-round 74 to share eighth. Kim opened with a birdie,…...

BASTAD, Sweden: Spaniard David Ferrer claimed his first ATP Tour title in almost two years by seeing off Alexandr Dolgopolov to win the clay-court tournament in Bastad for the third time on Sunday (Jul 23). David Ferrer of Spain reacts after winning the singles final match of the Swedish Open ATP tennis tournament against Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine 6-4, 6-4 in Bastad, Sweden. (Adam IHSE/TT News Agency/AFP) The 35-year-old Ferrer came through 6-4, 6-4 to seal the 27th title of his career, but first since October 2015 when he won in Vienna. The former French Open finalist, now ranked 46th in the world, was cruising to victory with a 5-1 lead in the second set, but needed seven match points to eventually get over the line. "I'm moved. This is my first tournament win in two years," Ferrer said. "It has been a tough period without victories." Ferrer's victory means that eight of the last 13 stagings of the event have been won by Spanish players, with Rafael Nadal, Tommy Robredo, Nicolas Almagro and last year's champion Albert Ramos-Vinolas all successful since 2005. Ukrainian Dolgopolov had to settle for his first runner-up effort in three years, although he did beat Kei Nishikori to win in Argentina in February. Source AFP ... [read more]

SOUTHPORT, United Kingdom: Jordan Spieth recovered from the brink of a disastrous collapse to regain his nerve and win the British Open with a breathtaking late flourish at Royal Birkdale on Sunday (Jul 23). US golfer Jordan Spieth poses with the Claret Jug, the trophy for the Champion golfer of the year after winning the 2017 British Open Golf Championship. (Andy BUCHANAN/AFP) The 23-year-old American ended up shooting a one-under-par round of 69 to finish 12-under and claim his third major title by three strokes from compatriot Matt Kuchar. Spieth had been top of the leaderboard after each of the first three rounds and, having already won the Masters and US Open in 2015, his victory saw him emulate the great Jack Nicklaus in getting his hands on a third different major before turning 24. But this was very nearly a historic meltdown from Spieth equal only in recent times to his own collapse in the 2016 Masters, when he threw away a five-stroke lead halfway through his final round to hand the green jacket to Danny Willett. "This was eventful. Seventeen pars and a birdie would have been fine too, but there are a lot of roads to get there," Spieth said after receiving the Claret Jug trophy to go with the US$1.85 million cheque for the winner. Spieth had let a three-stroke overnight advantage fritter away by the fourth…... [read more]
