In 2011, top Vietnamese sprinters Vu Thi Huong and Truong Thanh Hang were trained in Germany. However, Huong missed the opportunity to compete at the 2012 Olympic games in London due to injury.

Last year, local athletes were sent to training camps in Bulgaria and Malaysia in a bid to gain better achievements at the 27th Southeast Asian Games.

Vietnam’s national athletic team convened for training from January 1 in Hanoi, Danang and HCM City.
