Article by Andrew Pirie

ATFS Statistician 

The Asian Indoor in Tehran saw very few South East Asian participants. And it is in progress in Tehran, Iran February 1 to February 3. The only South East Asian represented in Vietnam. Who have sent a rather skeleton team? 

Day 3

As the competition concluded Vietnam the only participating SEA Nation at the Asian Indoor Athletics in Tehran finished 7th of 12th nations with 1 Gold and 3 Bronze medals.

Asian and SEA Champion Bui Thi Thao won the Long Jump for Vietnam in 6.20m.

Another Bronze was added from Nguyen Thi Oanh SEA Games 1500m Champion, she timed 4:28.87 to go with the 3000m Bronze she won the other day. But it was nearly 20 seconds away from the National Indoor Record. 

Vietnam Nguyen Tien Trong fouled his long jumps in the final.

Day 1

Starting with Thi Oanh Nguyen the 2015 SEA Games Champion at 1500 and 5000, took a bronze in the Women’s 3000m in a time of 9:48.48 which was not quite enough to get near the 11-year-old National Indoor record of Bui Thi Hien 9:36.38 set at the 2007 Asian Indoor Games in Macau.

Bui Thi Thao

Vietnam dished out its second medal, on Day 1 with another bronze courtesy of SEA Games Long Jump Champion Bui Thi Thao who also shattered the National Indoor Record with a 13.22m leap. Well above the 13-year-old national record set in 2005 by Bui Thi Nhat Thanh.

While in the qualifying round of Long Jump Nguyen Trien Trong leaped 7.50m to qualify 3rd= for the men’s final. It eclipsed his own national record of 7.48m set at the Asian Indoor and martial art games last year.
