The Vietnamese swimming team also had a favorable opening day when it brought the Vietnam Sports Delegation 3 more gold medals. In particular, “fisherman” Nguyen Huy Hoang was the one who opened the gold medal for Vietnam swimming when he finished first in the 1,500m content with a record of 15 minutes 0 seconds 75.
However, the most remarkable thing must be the gold medal of Pham Thanh Bao in the 100m breaststroke content. The 21-year-old swimmer finished first with a record of 1 minute 1 second 17 and broke the SEA Games record. Thus, Thanh Bao successfully changed the color of the medal. Remember at the regional congress in the Philippines in 2019, he won 2 silver and 1 bronze.

The old record belonged to the Vietnamese legend, Nguyen Huu Viet set in 2009. At the congress 13 years ago, Nguyen Huu Viet won the gold medal in the men’s 100m breaststroke with a record of 1 minute 1 second 60.
