Khanh Hoa's sports delegation has good start at National Sports Festival 2018

Khanh Hoa athletes compete in 16 out of 36 sports of the Eighth National Sports Festival. The sports delegation of Khanh Hoa started quite well with three gold medals in their best sports. 
 
The first two gold medals of Khanh Hoa’s sports teams at this edition came from the beach volleyball athletes as expected. The beach volleyball competition of the festival was organized in Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa from November 15 to 18. Nguyen Trong Quoc – Nguyen Thanh Vinh won gold in men’s event while Nguyen Thi Thanh Tram and Nguyen Thi Mai were also got the best achievement in women’s event. These gold medals were event more memorable to Khanh Hoa’s athletes because they played while being partly psychologically affected by the weakened storm Toraji hitting Khanh Hoa during the competition causing a lot of damages.

 

 
At the Seven National Sports Festival four years ago, Nguyen Trong Quoc and Nguyen Thanh Vinh were at their apex and were said to have no opponents in the domestic tournament at that time. They are having signs of ageing now. In addition, apart from spending time to practice, Trong Quoc has also been responsible for training young players. However, at the 2018 competition, the pair still played with high determination and showed their good skills and experience. They won 2-0 over the pair of Ho Chi Minh City in the final.  
 
The third gold medal of Khanh Hoa’s sports delegation at this year’s edition was the achievement of dance sport athletes. Bui Quang Nam and Nguyen Thi Hong Anh of Khanh Hoa joined three events of dance sport and gained one gold for quickstep, one silver for tango, and one bronze for standard. 
 
Both beach volleyball and dance sport teams of Khanh Hoa performed well and met their target. As of now, prior to the official opening of the 2018 National Sports Festival which is scheduled for November 25 in Hanoi, Khanh Hoa has achieved three gold, one silver, and two bronzes. This is considered as a good start of Khanh Hoa’s sports delegation, and they are vying for a place in the final top 20 with ten golds, six silvers, and seven bronzes.
