Le Minh Duc won Vietnam’s first international bowling gold medal at the under-21 youth championship of the 2022 MWA-Singha Thailand International Open tournament in Bangkok on Friday. 

Duc outplayed eight bowlers from Singapore, five from host Thailand, and two from Hong Kong in the Masters round of the championship.

The young Vietnamese representative scored a total of 1,923 points after eight games, with an average of 240.38 points, 77 points more than Thailand’s Putana to win the gold medal - which is the first-of-its-kind international achievement for Vietnamese bowling.

Duc is considered an outstanding young talent of Vietnamese bowling, having participated in the 31st Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi in May. 

He is currently a student at Hong Bang University in Ho Chi Minh City.

As an encouragement gift for the three great achievements, Pham Quang Chanh, chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City Bowling Federation, who was also present in Thailand, rewarded each athlete 1,000 baht (US$27.3).
