(VOVWORLD) - Tran Ho Duy on Sunday secured a bronze medal in the men’s individual poomsae category of taekwondo at the ongoing 19th Asian Games (ASIAD) in Hangzhou, China.

The men’s individual poomsae category is held in the knockout format.

This is the second medal obtained by Vietnam at the games on the first official competition day. Previously, rowers Dinh Thi Hao, Ha Thi Vui, Pham Thi Hue and Du Thi Bong finished third in the women's coxless fours. 

On Sunday, Vietnamese athletes take part in 14 sports including shooting, boxing, men’s football, table tennis, swimming, chess, fencing, esport, judo, rowing, wushu, taekwondo, tennis, and gymnastics.

They aim to pocket two to five gold medals at the games, close to the achievement at the previous ASIAD in Indonesia in 2018, which was the most successful Asian Games of Vietnam to date with five gold medals in women's rowing, athletics, women’s long jump, men's pencak silat, and women’s 400m hurdles.
