Vietnam wins 3 SEA Games bronze medals, unable to grab 2nd place

Monday, June 15, 2015, 17:10 GMT+7

Having won only three bronze medals as of the time of writing on Monday, Team Vietnam has to accept its third place in the medal table and holds no more chance to improve its ranking at the 28th Southeast Asian Games since it is nine golds fewer than second-placed host Singapore with 82 golds.

Vietnam has earned 73 golds, 51 silvers, and 59 bronzes, and will only compete in three more events at the multi-sport tournament, which will wrap up on Tuesday.

The country is now hoping for a medal from its women’s petanque squad, now playing with Thailand in the women’s triples semifinals.

The second hope for Vietnam comes from the women’s volleyball team, which is now playing the final match with Thailand.

That is all for today, while tomorrow the Vietnamese men’s volleyball team will also take on Thailand in the final match at 9:00 am (Vietnam time).

The three bronze medals for Vietnam today went to Vu Thi Trang in the women’s singles badminton, the men’s football team, and the women’s sepatakraw double athletes Nguyen Thi Quyen and Tran Thi Viet My.

Thailand is leading the medal table with 88 golds, 83 silvers, and 67 bronzes. Host Singapore has 82 – 73 – 99 medals.

Malaysia and Indonesia are following at the fourth and fifth places with 60 and 45 gold medals respectively.
