On May 17th, shooter Tran Quoc Cuong was the first medalist of the Vietnamese sporting delegation at the 31st SEA Games when winning the gold medal in the men's 50m air pistol event.

This is the moment after Tran Quoc Cuong just won the gold medal.

Shooter Tran Quoc Cuong is still known as “the old man” in the national shooting team with more than 30 years of practice and 27 years of professional competition.

After shooter Hoang Xuan Vinh became the coach, Tran Quoc Cuong has become the most experienced shooter in the national team and has been considered a spiritual support for many juniors, especially when the team is in the rejuvenation process.

Tran Quoc Cuong was considered as one of the shooters who jointly tried to achieve the goal of winning 5-6 gold medals set by the national shooting team before this SEA Games. The greatest hope was placed in the 2 strong events which are of the 50m slow-fire pistol and the men's 10m air pistol./.
