At the 2020 Weightlifting World Cup in Rome last month, Tuan earned three golds in the men’s 61kg, thus strengthening his position among Asia’s top eight and his bid for an Olympic berth. Meanwhile, Duyen won three golds in the women’s 59kg.

Until June, Vietnamese athletes will compete at international tournaments to earn ranking points in the hope for qualification for the Games, particularly those in women’s football, athletics, shooting, taekwondo and karatedo.

In 2019, four Vietnamese successfully booked their participation at the Tokyo Olympic Games, including swimmer Nguyen Huy Hoang, gymnast Le Thanh Tung and archers Do Thi Anh Nguyet and Nguyen Hoang Phi Vu.

As many as 23 Vietnamese athletes competed at the previous Olympic Games in Brazil, in which marksman Hoang Xuan Vinh brought home one gold and one silver.
