Weightlifter Hoang Thi Duyen poses with her 30th SEA Games gold medal, grabbed in 2019 in the Philippines.

Duyen will begin competing at 13:50 (Vietnam time).

She earned a gold medal in the 30th Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 30) in 2019.

Weightlifters brought home medals from two of the past three Olympic Games, including a gold by Hoang Anh Tuan in the Beijing 2008 Olympics and a bronze by Tran Le Quoc Toan in the London 2012 Olympics.

In badminton, Nguyen Tien Minh (the world’s No. 60) will play against Azerbaijani rival Ade Resky (No. 80).

Earlier, he lost to the world's No. 3 player Anders Antonsen of Denmark.

At 18:20, 21-year-old swimmer Nguyen Huy Hoang will compete in the 800-m freestyle against 33 rivals. Eight swimmers with the best performance will qualify for the final slated for July 29.

In rowing, Luong Thi Thao and Dinh Thi Hao competed in the women’s lightweight doubles sculls - Final C on July 27 morning. However, as they ranked fifth out of the six teams in the repechage, their medal hope faded.
