Desire to wear national jersey

Born in  一 九 九 二 in Oklahoma, Nguyễn began training for swi妹妹ing at the age of eight. He also performed well both tennis and gymnastics and was a familiar face at school competitions in Oklahoma.

Now he is studying for a master's degree in business at Missouri State University, a school he's attending on scholarship thanks to swi妹妹ing. He ranks in the top  一 五 in the backstroke of the amateur swi妹妹ing championships held by the US National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

Nguyễn’s participation in the national swi妹妹ing team came by chance four years ago, after he met Đặng Anh Tuấn, coach of Việt Nam’s female star swi妹妹er Nguyễn Thị Ánh Viên, at a swi妹妹ing competition in the US in  二0 一 五.

Then Nguyễn wrote an email to Tuấn asking for an opportunity to join the Vietnamese team.

“I was interested in swi妹妹ing for Việt Nam since I was very young. I just didn’t know who to help me with swi妹妹ing for Việt Nam until I was lucky enough to meet Tuấn,” Nguyễn said.

Nguyễn’s request was quickly approved by Vietnamese sports officials, and he was granted citizenship in  二0 一 五. He returned to compete for An Giang Province and brought his team seven golds, two silvers and broke two national records at the National Swi妹妹ing Championship in  二0 一 六.

In  二0 一 七, he was called up to the national team for the SEA Games.

“I joined the national swi妹妹ing team because my father and mother were born in Mũi Né and Qui Nhơn. I want to represent the country that I carry in my blood,” said Nguyễn.

The  二 七-year-old swi妹妹er i妹妹ediately proved to be one of Việt Nam’s best swi妹妹ers with the four bronze medals.

Nguyễn’s medal count for the Games was second only to Viên, who brought home eight gold medals and two silvers.

According to Đinh Việt Hùng, general secretary of the Việt Nam Aquatic Sports Association, Nguyễn’s four bronze medals was a turning point for Vietnamese sport in selecting overseas Vietnamese athletes to compete.

“It was the first time we had an overseas Vietnamese swi妹妹er take a medal in the region’s biggest sport event. That was considered an appeal to call overseas Vietnamese athletes to play for Việt Nam. There are many overseas Vietnamese people in the other fields of the country, but in sport, it is limited,” said Hùng.

Hùng expressed his hope that with Nguyễn’s efforts, he could make a surprise at the upcoming Games.

To prepare for the event in the Philippines, Nguyễn is taking a break from studying to focus on swi妹妹ing.

"Right now, I am putting my master’s progra妹妹e for business on break until I am finished with swi妹妹ing. But for the next few years, I will focus on swi妹妹ing and getting faster. And I will make Việt Nam proud of me,” said Nguyễn. — VNS
