The Danang swimming team finished in fourth position this year, although it was the first time they had remained undefeated in all three relays at the championships, with Kim Son competing in all three.
On his return, Kim Son said: “Our success is due the hard work of the entire team and the diligent guidance of our coaches. Meanwhile, I want to thank our DTU lecturers for supporting us during practice sessions and the actual competition. As I need to travel far for training, I am always happy that my lecturers and classmates are always available to answer my questions, which helps me understand the lessons better while away.”
