Two athletes win gold medals at Singapore Open Track and Field Championships

Two Vietnamese track-and-field athletes Nguyen Thi Thanh Phuc and Bui Thi Thu Thao excellently grabbed two gold medals in the first competitive day of Singapore Open Track and Field Championships 2016 on April 28.
 
Thanh Phuc was the winner in the women’s 20 kilometer race walk, scoring a victory in 1 hour 59 minutes 44 seconds.
 
In the women’s long jump, Thu Thao owned a gold medal with a victory of 6.59 meters. However, her achievement is still not enough to help her gain a ticket for the Olympics in Rio this year.
