Weightlifting is Vietnam's biggest Olympic hope this year, with Thach Kim Tuan and Hoang Thi Duyen going all out for medals. -
In the past, Vietnamese weightlifting won one silver medal at 2008 Beijing Olympics and one bronze at London 2012, both in the men's 56 kg category. Tuan had started his career in this weight class. But when the International World Federation removed this class and replaced it with 55 kilograms, Tuan decided to move up to the 61 kg segment.
Tuan will compete on July 25 and Duyen on the 27th.
