Bac Giang sports in 2020: Great efforts to secure achievements

(BGO)- In 2020, due to severe impact of Covid-19 pandemic, the athletes have limited opportunities to attend domestic and international tournaments. In that context, Bac Giang sports have still gained remarkable achievements in both grassroots and high-achievement sports.

In 2020, the grassroots sports movement in the province continued to be invested to fulfill and exceed the set targets. The rate of people regularly practicing sports reaches 35 percent (up 1 percent against last year). There are more than 55,500 households and nearly 3,000 sport clubs in the entire province.

Due to impact of Covid-19 pandemic since early this year, the athletes could not attend international championships. Bac Giang has hosted 6 national sports competitions including the National Youth Chinese Chess Championship, National Badminton Tournament, National Youth Volleyball League, National Traditional Wrestling Championship, National Badminton League and National Team Chess Tournament.

In 2020, Bac Giang’s athletes attended 41 domestic competitions winning 237 medals of all types including 58 gold, 69 silver and 110 bronze medals in which 109 athletes have been ranked.


Thanks to these events, some young athletes proved themselves. Particularly, badminton player Tran Thi Phuong Thuy is bridging the gap left by athlete Vu Thi Trang when she was only narrowly defeated by a very strong opponent Nguyen Thuy Linh (from Dong Nai) at the final match.

This year, Bac Giang sports teams took part in 41 domestic competitions bagging 237 medals including 58 gold, 69 silver and 110 bronze medals, down 21 prizes compared to the same period last year but increasing 8 gold medals. The “golden girl” Nguyen Thi Oanh is considered the most successful athlete with convincing impression when winning 4 gold medals at the national track and field championships. Specially, she even won gold medal at the 10,000-metre category, which was not her strong suit with 34 minutes, 8.54 seconds breaking Doan Nu Truc Van’s record 17 years ago.

According to Nguyen Trong Bac, Vice Director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the achievements of Bac Giang’s sports demonstrated great efforts of the staffs, coaches and athletes during this year because the athletes had to cancel practicing and competing due to the pandemic. Many big sport events such as the 9th provincial sports festival and SEA Games 31 will take place in 2021; hence, the sport sector needs to highly concentrate on athlete training and coaching while dividing them into groups for development priority.

Besides, it needs to attach importance to providing political, ideological and ethic education to the coaches and athletes so that they will gain outstanding results in competition and have good virtue in life.
