 Vietnamese swimmer Nguyen Thi Anh Vien bagged bronze at the women’s 400-metre individual medley event on August 16 at the 2015 International Swimming Federation (FINA) World Cup Paris in Chartres city, France.

Vien completed the 400 metres in 4:43:53.

There were no surprises on the top rung of the podium as Hungarian female swimming legend Katina Hosszu was the champion of this category with 4:35:80. Hosszu’s countryman Zsuzsanna Zakabos came second with 4:37:63.

Natalie Cammile Adams from the US was holding onto third place for the first 200 metres, but Vien passed her in the breaststroke to take the medal.
