The association said it hopes that the support will serve as a source of encouragement for the delegation, given the limited contact in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The delegation arrived at Narita International Airport of Japan on July 19 to take part in the Tokyo Olympics, slated for July 23 - August 8.
During their stay, athletes are only allowed to travel between the village and the training and competition venues while sports officials have to move on only the routes they registered before entering Japan. They are banned from leaving the athletes’ village or going to tourist sites, restaurants, or bars, according to Olympics and Paralympics organisers’ regulations.
Athletes will also have samples taken for COVID-19 testing every day. In case of a positive test result, they will be hospitalised or sent to a hotel outside the athletes’ village for quarantine.
The 43-strong delegation of Viet Nam is led by Deputy General Director of the Vietnam Sports Administration Tran Duc Phan.
They comprise 18 athletes competing in 11 sports, namely Nguyen Huy Hoang and Nguyen Thi Anh Vien (swimming), Thach Kim Tuan and Hoang Thi Duyen (weightlifting), Nguyen Thi Thanh Thuy (judo), Hoang Xuan Vinh (shooting), Nguyen Tien Minh and Nguyen Thuy Linh (badminton), Nguyen Thi Tam and Nguyen Van Duong (boxing), Le Thanh Tung and Dinh Phuong Thanh (gymnastics), Truong Thi Kim Tuyen (taekwondo), Do Thi Anh Nguyet and Nguyen Hoang Phi Vu (archery), Quach Thi Lan (athletics), and Luong Thi Thao and Dinh Thi Hao (rowing).
