The Vietnam Paralympic Association held a “bon voyage” ceremony on December 3 for its delegation to the sixth ParaGames in Indonesia.

The 164 member Vietnamese sports delegation includes 112 athletes who will compete in seven of the 11 events at the Games such as track and fields events, table-tennis, badminton, weightlifting, chess, swimming, and tennis.

The delegation hopes to win 60-65 gold medals at the biggest sports event for disabled people in the Southeast Asian region.

Vietnam ranked third at the previous Games in Malaysia with 73 gold medals.
