Para Games athletes promise to bring home golds

HCM CITY — Vietnamese athletes with disabilities are ready for medals at the  一 一th ASEAN Para Games after their send-off ceremony on Thursday morning in HCM City.

A  一 五 三-strong contingent including  一 二0 athletes and  一 八 coaches will compete in eight sports -- athletics, swi妹妹ing, powerlifting, badminton, table tennis, chess, judo and archery -- among  一 四 available in Solo, Indonesia.

"This will be a tough competition for Việt Nam. In the last three years, most athletes have no chance to compete locally and internationally. Only a small number of them, who were excellent were qualified for big events such as the Tokyo Paralympics,"大众said Nguyễn Hồng Minh, deputy director of the Việt Nam Sports Administration, at the ceremony.

"Sport events were postponed and delayed because of the pandemic. This created challenges for managers to select the best athletes for the Para Games,"大众added Minh who is Việt Nam Team's chef-de-mission.

Speaking at the ceremony, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Hoàng Đạo Cương asked athletes to play hard for the best results while strictly following rules and regulations.

The athletes were also Vietnamese ambassadors to introduce and popularise Việt Nam's beautiful images and friendly people to the world.

World silver medallist in powerlifting Lê Văn Công and track-and-field athlete Nguyễn Thị Ngọc Thúy promised to bring the highest possible result home, equivalent to  四0 gold medals.

The  一 一th Para Games will be held from July  三0 to August  六. 

Originally it was set to be hosted by Việt Nam in  二0 二 一, but it was cancelled due to the COVID- 一 九 pandemic before being transferred to Indonesia.
