Hung Le

More than 1,000 primary, secondary and high school students in HCMC took part in a four-day Vovinam sporting tournament which wrapped up at Phu Tho Stadium in HCMC’s District 11 on Sunday.

The organizing committee awarded a total of 115 medal sets to winners of the competition. 

Organized by the HCMC Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Department of Education and Training in conjunction with Vietnam’s Vovinam Association, the tournament was aimed to raise awareness of a healthy lifestyle among students and nurture national pride for Vovinam, traditional Vietnamese martial arts developed by a local man namely Nguyen Loc.

This was the first time a Vovinam sporting tournament had been organized for students in the city.

The tournament is part of a series of activities of the “Active Vietnam” program launched by Nestlé’s Milo brand in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Training and Vietnam Sports Administration.
