Thanks to his relentless training and absolute confidence, the athlete Nguyen Thanh Tien - FPT University student won the gold medal in the Long Ho Quyen competition. Besides, Hoang Bach Ty and Huynh Minh Duc from FPT University’s Vovinam Club were both awarded two bronze medals.
In the spirit of developing martial arts and honouring the lasting relations among the participating units, the sporting event enjoyed a joyful and lively atmosphere. It started with a performance of fluid yet dynamic martial arts moves by female athletes from 12 units (universities, colleges and institutes). The lucky triumphant champion of this year was the athlete Nguyen Thi Huong with her Thap Tu Quyen performance.
“My heart was skipping a beat, only when the results were announced that I could finally relax. Right now I only want to say thanks to my teachers, for their detailed guidance and tremendous support. If you ask me the key to winning a Gold medal, it would be training hard under teachers’ instructions and being confident in yourself” - FPT University’s Vovinam athlete Nguyen Thanh Tien, K12 Software Engineering student shared wittily.

Having supported the athletes spiritually, teacher Vo Minh Luan couldn’t hold his happiness when his students got awarded: “At first I was really worried, worried that my students would be mentally shocked and would not perform their very best. But I saw that they had improved a lot and had an excellent mood. I wanted to say that ‘just get out there and do your best while I’ll handle the rest’. By the way, I, on behalf of FPT University’s Vovinam unit, am grateful to the event, for creating a fun playground for students to compete, exchange with others and showcase their abilities.”
