Specifically, four athletes will participate in the Asian Throwing Championships 2024, scheduled to take place on June 14-15 in Mokpo, the Republic of Korea.

The annual tournament features all the best athletes from Asian countries such as Chinese Tian Zizhong (shot-put), Kazakhs Ivan Ivanov (shot-put), Chinese Taipei Cheng Chao Tsun and Huang Shih Feng (javelin throw) and Japanese Maki Saito and Nanaka Kori (discus throw).

Vietnamese representatives are Phan Thanh Binh (shot-put and discus throw), Nguyen Hoai Văn (javelin throw), Le Thi Cam Dung (discus throw) and Do Tan (hammer throw). Among them, Van won gold in SEA Games 2021 and silver last year and Binh pocketed silver in SEA Games 2023.

Meanwhile, a group of 12 competitors are taking part in the Thailand Open 2024 from June 13-17.

Nguyen Thanh Vy, Pham Quynh Giang and Nguyen Quoc Thinh will vie for medals in the men's and women's high jump while Nguyen Thi Lan Anh will participate in the women's heptathlon competition.

Sam Van Doi will run in the men's 800m and 1,500m and Hoang Thi Anh Thuc will compete in the women's 400m.

Vietnamese athletes will have the opportunity to fight off against short-running "prodigy" Puripol Boonson and Soraoat Dabbang of Thailand in the 100m event. Boonson was winners of the 100m and 200m in the 31st Games and Dabbang topped podiums of these events in the 32nd edition./.
