Vietnam has finished first at the 2022 Microsoft Office Specialist Word Championship, winning two gold medals, one silver, and one bronze.

The four faces who brought glory to Vietnam at the world's largest MSO playground include Bui Cong Minh from Nguyen Tat Thanh Middle and High School in Hanoi, who received a gold medal in Microsoft PowerPoint 2016; Nguyen Duy Phong from Hanoi University of Science and Technology, who won a gold medal in Microsoft Excel 365 Apps and Office 2019; Nguyen Trong Khai from University of Science and Technology of Hanoi, who bagged a silver medal in Microsoft Word 365 Apps and Office 2019; and Dao Ngoc Tung Chi from Foreign Trade University in Hanoi, who took home a bronze medal in Microsoft Word 2016.

Unable to hide his emotions at the awards ceremony, Minh felt like “exploding,” shaking in happiness when his name was mentioned.

He is also the youngest competitor who has ever clinched a gold medal in the history of Vietnam’s participation in the contest.

Phong was also enthusiastic to share his happiness on achieving the highest degree of awards, bringing glory to his home country.

Vietnam received the most awards from this year’s Microsoft Office Specialist Word Championship edition, said Doan Hong Nam, president of IIG Vietnam, chief of the national organizing committee and head of the Vietnamese team.

This is also the first time in 13 years of competing at the championship that the Vietnamese team has reached the top spot.

The Microsoft Office Specialist Word Championship is an international playground for students, aged 13-22, on a global scale to find and glorify talents in Microsoft Office usage.

Its 2022 edition took place in Anaheim, California from July 24 to 27

Vietnam’s medal tally at all MOSWC iterations has added up to four gold medals, three silvers, and 10 bronzes.
