Huyen, the 2019 World Cup gold medalist, lifted 73 kg in the snatch and 92 kg in the clean and jerk categories, and claimed another gold for lifting a total of 168kg in the women’s 45kg division. Her teammate, Khong My Phuong, lifted 70kg and bagged a bronze medal in the snatch event. She finished fourth in total with 157kg. Huyen said she was not satisfied despite winning the gold because her lift was 2kg less than her total at the 2019 World Cup in February. However, her coach, Nguyen Manh Thang, said that her performance was acceptable since it was not long since she had changed to compete in the 45kg division. Another Vietnamese weightlifter participating in the tournament, Thach Kim Tuan, won bronze in the men’s 61kg division with a total lift of 136kg.

At a working session with Richard F.Chandler, Chairman and Founder of Clermont Group, in Hanoi on December 11, the official suggested that the group consider the direct provision of services in the fintech and digital banking sectors in Vietnam.

Angry: Liverpool fans protest of the golden handshake given to Premier League CEO Richard Scudamore. — Photo courtesy of Alistair Bascombe Viet Nam News by Paul Kennedy Around 200 men from Liverpool travelled to Spain in 1933. They were ordinary, working class lads. Many from industrial backgrounds like coal miners, or dock workers, who headed south to fight in the Spanish Civil War. At the time, the UK government wanted nothing to do with troubles in Spain where General Francisco Franco was hell bent on ruling the country with a fascist iron fist. Despite the ban on Brits helping out, the Liverpudlians, along with many other working class men from other cities in the UK, went anyway, picked up their arms and fought side by side with soldiers who they couldn’t even speak the same language as.
