476 Vietnamese athletes to join SEA Games 29

Vietnam’s sports delegation will take part in SEA Games 29 in Malaysia with 693 members, in which there are 264 male athletes and 212 female athletes, according to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
 
Vietnamese athletes will compete in 32 sports, such as swimming, track and field, shooting, football, archery, volleyball, cricket, bowling, hockey, and synchronized swimming.
 
Vietnam fields more athletes to SEA Games 29 than SEA Games 28 (365 athletes) partly because the host Malaysia incorporates more team sports into the competition program.

 

 
At SEA Games 29, Vietnam’s sports delegation aims to achieve more than 60 gold medals and finish in top three positions. 
 
As planned, Vietnam’s sports delegation will join SEA Games 29 in Malaysia from August 11 to September 1.
