NDO – The Vietnamese sports delegation won two additional gold medals at the on-going 29th South East Asian (SEA) Games in Malaysia on August 28, all came from weightlifting. >>> Thach Kim Tuan secures Vietnam’s first weightlifting gold medal >>> SEA Games: Second gold medal for Vietnamese weightlifting It was Thach Kim Tuan's victory in the 56kg category with a lift of 267 kg.

NDO – It is possible that Vietnam’s position on the medal standings of the 29th SEA Games will change, either higher or lower compared to the current third-place ranking, as the Games conclude on August 30. However, it is no longer an issue of much significance, as the Vietnamese sport has been continuously consistent on their present path with a lot of hopes: rising to the continental level and advancing into the Olympic arena. >>> Anh Vien concludes SEA Games campaign with eight individual gold medals This year, the SEA Games competition will wrap up for the Vietnam sport delegation in a definitely different manner. Actually, the transformation already emerged after the conclusion of the Games in Singapore two years ago, but it is not until now that the reform roadmap of Vietnamese sport has been clearly confirmed. Right before the day of departure, the Vietnamese sport contingent no longer had to “shoulder” the achievement goal of compulsorily making the top three on the overall medal haul as in previous Games versions. Although the failure of U22 Vietnam and Olympic champion Hoang Xuan Vinh has left a sad tone in the mood of home fans, across the competition venues in Malaysia, the main “sound” remains the success of Vietnam’s national teams in key Olympic sports. Concerning swimmer Anh Vien’s eight individual gold medals, Swimswam.com, an international website specialised in swimming, stated that “Anh Vien remains on fire”. And following Vien, 15-year-old Nguyen Huu Kim Son came to light, taking the…... [read more]

PARIS: Kylian Mbappe was left on the bench as Radamel Falcao scored twice in Monaco's 6-1 trouncing of Marseille in Ligue 1 on Sunday (Aug 27). Monaco's forward Kylian Mbappe sits on the bench at the start of the French L1 football match against Marseille Aug 27, 2017. (Photo: AFP/Valery Hache) Four of the goals came in the first half at the Stade Louis II, with captain Falcao's brace falling in between strikes from Kamil Glik and Adama Diakhaby. Djibril Sidibe and Fabinho, with a penalty, completed the rout after the break.  The reigning champions have won four out of four games to start the season and sit second on goal difference behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain, the only other team with a perfect record at the end of August. Monaco's record-breaking run of victories in France's top flight now stretches to 16, and they have scored 18 goals in their last four games against Marseille, winning the lot. Marseille, for whom Remy Cabella grabbed a consolation, had not lost in 14 Ligue 1 matches but they were outclassed by a Monaco side clearly not perturbed by the speculation surrounding Mbappe's future. The 18-year-old French international striker, one of the stars of last season's run to the title, is on the brink of completing a much talked about move to PSG that would end a summer-long transfer saga. A deal for Mbappe could…... [read more]
