Le Thi Mong Tuyen has earned Vietnam's fourth ticket to the Paris Olympics following her excellent performance at the 2024 Asian Rifle and Pistol Championship which is being held in Indonesia Jan. 7-17.

The coaching staff said on Jan. 10 that by gaining 125.9 points in the finale and ranking fourth in the women's 10-metre air pistol event, Tuyen was qualified to attend the Olympics.

On Jan. 9, markspersons Pham Quang Huy and Trinh Thu Vinh won a gold medal in the 10-meter air pistol mixed team event. However, this does not count as an Olympic qualifier.

Earlier, Vinh won a slot at the Olympics as she achieved a high result at the 53rd ISSF World Shooting Championships in Azerbaijan in August 2023.

Cyclist Nguyen Thi That and swimmer Nguyen Huy Hoang also grabbed berths at the summer games in Paris.
