“We did not pay attention to other teams’ performances. We only focused on rowing as fast as we could,” said Ta Thanh Huyen with a big smile.

“Iran is the strongest competitor in this category. But today, our rowers entered the competition with a calm and confident mindset,” said Nguyen Trong Ho, deputy head of Vietnam's Asiad 2018 delegation.
