Always winning gold medals at the Southeast Asian Games, shooting is the leading sport of the Vietnamese sports delegation. Despite the “traditional” difficulties with regular training in the absence of ammunition, shooting with paper beer (the world shoots with electronic beer), Vietnamese shooting has always affirmed its dominance. .
However, at the 30th Southeast Asian Games in the Philippines in 2019, the Vietnamese did not win a single gold medal in shooting. This has caused many concerns among Vietnamese sports fans.
At the 31st Southeast Asian Games held in China, Vietnamese shooters were fortunate to receive government investment to renovate and upgrade Ren’s paper shooting range into a modern electronic shooting range.
On March 18, the Ren Range was completed and handed over to the team for re-training. These days, the shooting competition before the 31st Southeast Asian Games is being held. According to the technical experts of the Asian Shooting Federation, Ren Shooting Range is currently the leading modern shooting range in Southeast Asia.

Accordingly, May 6 will not only be the first competition for men’s football, but also the men’s and women’s beach handball matches will be held in Tuan Chau (Quang Ninh) on the same day. Interestingly, this is also the earliest topic to end before the opening of the 31st SEA Games.

For the past decade or so, Vietnamese fencing has been among the best in the region. However, recently, due to the impact of the epidemic, foreign training and competition plans have not been implemented as scheduled.

In addition to the objective factors affected by the epidemic, teachers and students of the fencing team are also facing difficulties in obtaining more equipment. Most of the athlete’s equipment, such as armor, helmets, swords… are relatively old, and only a few are equipped with new ones.
However, at the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 31) held at home this time, the Vietnamese fencing discipline sprinted towards the goal of winning three gold medals in training and competition with the highest determination. The content of the men’s sword cut, the men’s three-sided sword can win many medals, which is considered Vietnam’s strength.
