NDO – Female boxer Nguyen Thi Tam in the women's 51kg category has secured Vietnam’s 11th slot at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

Tam booked a ticket to the Tokyo Olympics after accumulating 190 points in tournaments organised by the World Boxing Federation.

Nguyen Thi Tam is the second Vietnamese boxer to win a berth at the Tokyo Olympics after Nguyen Van Duong did so in the men's 57kg category thanks to his excellent qualifiers performance in Jordan in 2020.

So far, Vietnam has a total of 11 athletes at the Tokyo Olympics, including Truong Thi Kim Tuyen (Taekwondo), Nguyen Huy Hoang (swimming), Le Thanh Tung and Dinh Phuong Thanh (gymnastics), Nguyen Van Duong and Nguyen Thi Tam (boxing), Nguyen Tien Minh and Nguyen Thuy Linh (badminton), Do Thi Anh Nguyet and Nguyen Hoang Phi Vu (archery), and duo Luong Thi Thao/Dinh Thi Hao (rowing).
