Vietnam is aiming to win at least nine gold medals at the upcoming fourth Asian Indoor & Martial Art Games (AIMAG 4) that will take place in Incheon, Republic of Korea from June 29 to July 6.

According to Nhan Dan (People) Newspaper Online, Vietnam will send 106 competitors to 12 events, including billiards and snooker, short-course swimming, chess, muay, kickboxing, dance sport, kurash, kabaddi, bowling, eSports and futsal.

The country’s two top chess stars, Le Quang Liem and Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son, are expected to secure two gold medals, while prominent swimmers Nguyen Thi Anh Vien and Hoang Quy Phuoc are also good bets for Vietnamese gold at the competition.

The national sports delegation will arrive in Incheon on June 27, two days before the official AIMAG opening ceremony at Samsan World Gymnasium.

The eight-day event is an ideal platform for Vietnamese athletes to hone their skills and gain experience in preparation for the 27th Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar this December and the 17th Asian Games in Incheon next year.-VNA
