Vietnam reached its target and finished among the top three at the seventh ASEAN Para Games, following the final day of competition on January 19 in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.

The final tally showed the Vietnamese winning 47 gold medals and standing third behind Indonesia with 89 gold medals and Thailand, 81.

Track-and-field athletes opened the final day with Vietnam's Nguyen Thi Hai winning a gold medal in the women's F57 javelin event.

According to coach Dang Van Phu, her score of 24.88m was higher than the world record of 23m.

It was the second title for Hai, after her first gold medal in the discus event on January 17.

Hai's boyfriend, Cao Ngoc Hung, also won two gold medals and set a world Para Games record in the men's discus with a score of 47.88m.

Nguyen Thi Thuy followed Hai to the top of the podium after winning the women's T44 100m event. Thuy ran 15.84 seconds to set a ASEAN Para Games record, some 0.82sec better than the former record that she set nine years ago in the Philippines.

It was the third gold medal won in Myanmar by the 40-year-old athlete, who previously won in the long jump and 200m categories.

The last medal to the Vietnamese team was won by the women's table tennis squad, defeating Indonesia 3-2 in a tough final match.-VNA
