A boat from Vietnam will participate in the World Rowing Championships to be held in Slovakia from August 26 to September 4, with the goal of qualifying for the 2012 London Olympics.

The team includes veterans Dang Thi Tham, Tran Thi Sam, Pham Thi Hue, Pham Thi Thao, Pham Thi Hai and Nguyen Thi Huu, who collectively won two silver medals at the 16th Asian Games in China last November.

At the recent ASEAN Rowing Championships, Vietnam triumphed with six golds, two silvers and one bronze./.
