The Vietnamese delegation to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics consists of 43 members led by Deputy General Director of the Vietnam Sports Administration Tran Duc Phan, according to a decision issued by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The 43 members comprise 25 officials, coaches, and experts, along with 18 athletes in 11 sports, namely Nguyen Huy Hoang and Nguyen Thi Anh Vien (swimming), Thach Kim Tuan and Hoang Thi Duyen (weightlifting), Nguyen Thi Thanh Thuy (judo), Hoang Xuan Vinh (shooting), Nguyen Tien Minh and Nguyen Thuy Linh (badminton), Nguyen Thi Tam and Nguyen Van Duong (boxing), Le Thanh Tung and Dinh Phuong Thanh (gymnastics), Truong Thi Kim Tuyen (taekwondo), Do Thi Anh Nguyet and Nguyen Hoang Phi Vu (archery), Quach Thi Lan (athletics), and Luong Thi Thao and Dinh Thi Hao (rowing).

 

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics, slated for July 18 - August 13, is the most special so far due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Members of the Vietnamese delegation got the second shots of COVID-19 vaccine on July 9 to meet the Olympics organisers’ requirements. After arriving in Japan, they will undergo tests and be quarantined for three days.

At the Rio 2016 Olympics in Brazil, Vietnam bagged one gold and one silver for the first time in an Olympics thanks to marksman Hoang Xuan Vinh./.
