Thong Nhat Speedy Cup

Vietnam who has been largely unaffected by the COVID with 0 Deaths will open its Athletics season on June 10 with the Speedy Cup. The competition will be the first meet of the year for the South East Asian powerhouse. This begins Vietnam’s preparation for the 2021 SEA Games. In which Vietnam will be the host nation.

The Thong Nhat Speed ​​Cup track and field tournament in 2020 (June 8 to June 14) at Thong Nhat Stadium (Ho Chi Minh City) will be the first race to take place after the epidemic in Vietnam.  It all begins with the Speedy Cup in which National athletes will be evaluated and new athletes from the provinces will emerge and vie for spots in the National Team.

SEA Games Power House

Vietnam has gone from 6 golds in 2013 to 9 in 2015 17 in 2017 and then 16 in 2019.  The scary thing is Vietnam has had the most number of golds in the last 2 SEA Games 17 and 16 without even being the host. They will have the added advantage of being host next year. Undoubtedly the Vietnam government will be putting in a much larger investment towards building a stronger team.

The scary thing is if Vietnam can get 16-17 golds without the home ground advantage in athletics. They could be looking at 20 golds or more if they are the SEA Games hosts.

SEA Games Champions join Thong Nhat Speedy Cup

Thong Nhat Speedy Cup

  • Quach Cong Lich – Quach Thi Lan (Thanh Hoa, mixed HCV 400m); 
  • Nguyen Thi Huyen (Nam Dinh, Gold Medal 400m and fence 400m SEA Games 30); 
  • Dinh Thi Bich (Nam Dinh, HCV 800m SEA Games 30) …

Spectators who love athletics can go to Thong Nhat Stadium to watch for free, support the athletes compete.

Gold Medals Increase with Foundation set by Foreign Coaches

Vietnam really leveled up with Foreign coaches such as world-renown American sprints coach Loren Seagrave (who is now with Thailand athletics), German Hurdles Coach Rudiger Harksen, Australian sprints coach Gerard Keating, and several Russian and soviet satellite coaches. Who helped provide coaching knowledge, information, and mentorship that helped lift the level of the local coaches to the point where they continued to produce good results. 

On a Further note, it will be good to see the first Athletic competition in South East Asia since around March. The 2020 SEA Ranking Lists have been rather quiet for the past 3-4 months. It will be good to finally be able to update them.
