Vietnam at Tokyo 2020: Waiting for miracle from Thuy Linh, Anh Vien

After an unsuccessful Sunday, the Vietnamese contingent will continue their 2020 Olympic campaign on July 26 – the third official day of the Games, with badminton player Nguyen Thuy Linh featuring in the women’s singles event and swimmer Nguyen Thi Anh Vien competing in the women’s 200m freestyle discipline.

Thuy Linh will play her second match in Group P against world No. 1 Tai Tzu-ying (Chinese Taipei). This is considered a tough challenge for the Vietnamese star although she comfortably breezed past France’s Qi Xuefei 2-0 on the opening day.
