Sportspersons participating in the remaining events – cycling, football, table tennis, badminton and volleyball – are expected to gain experience from competing with strong rivals.

At the last Asiad in Guangzhou, China, Viet Nam received just one gold medal, won by karate expert Le Bich Phuong. This year, the country hopes to bring home at least two gold medals.
