The ASEAN Para Games has been delayed indefinitely because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic. Vietnamese athletes return their locals to continue to train.

About 100 Vietnamese athletes were scheduled to take part in the regional multi-event tournament for differently-abled athletes.

Following the change from the hosts Philippines, the Vietnam National Sports Administration decided Vietnamese athletes should return to their local teams to train.

However, nearly 20 athletes of three key sports of powerlifting, athletics and swimming will stay with the national set up to prepare for the Paralympics to be held in August in Japan.

At present, Vietnam has five slots to compete in Japan in athletics and swimming.

Vu The Phiet, Vice President and General Secretary of the VPA, said Vietnam aims to earn 10-12 tickets to the Paralympics.
