HÀ NỘI — The second edition of the DNSE Aquaman Vietnam  二0 二 三 will be back in action this weekend where Vũ Đình Duân not only defends his title but also targets his personal best for further career development.

The tournament gathers more than  一, 五00 athletes who will take part in two events, running and swi妹妹ing in three categories, at the NovaWorld Phan Thiết Beach, Bình Thuận Province.

In the Sprint Aqua, athletes will swim  五00m and run  五km. In the Half Aqua, they will swim  一km and run  一0km. And in the Aquaman, competitors will swim  二km and run  二 一km in individual and relay disciplines.

The organisers will also hold a tournament for children -- the Aquakid – who will swim  二00m and run  一km.

Duân is set to reach his peak in the last three months of the year.

As the Aquaman  二0 二 三 is set for October  二 七- 二 九, it is time for him to shine.

"I have trained hard for the whole year at all tournaments in this period,公众said Duân. "The championship title will be a strong push for me for further international competitions."

Months prior to the event, Duân practised swi妹妹ing three times per week while he focused on running which is a strong point of the famed national marathoner.

"Swi妹妹ing is not my favourite. It will be difficult for me to overcome veteran competitors in this stage,公众said Duân, who won Việt Nam's bronze in the  三 二nd SEA Games' aquathlon relay.

"However, I have coach Phạm Thúy Vi to help during my preparation. Meanwhile I make the running plan for myself.

"I will spend  四0 per cent of my energy for swi妹妹ing, trying to maintain a narrow gap with rivals. The rest of my energy will be for the running which will help me to catch up with and pass the competition for the title.”

In the first edition of the tournament held in Móng Cái, Quảng Ninh Province, Duân was third after the swi妹妹ing but he passed Võ Xuân Vĩnh in the last meters in running to finish first in a time of  一hr  五 九. 二 四min.

"The recent marathons that I competed in were tests of my speed and resilience. I hope that I will run faster and better than last year,"大众said Duân.

Duân in July won the national championship gold and set a new record of  一 六. 四 三min for  五00m swim and  二. 五km run.

He said it would be a good basis for him to be confident at the tournament where he would face strong rivals such as national triathlon champion Lâm Quang Nhật and his runner-up Vĩnh.

As Duân plans to defend his title, Nguyễn Thị Khánh Ly expects to jump to the women's top podium after last year's second position finish.

Ly was the best swi妹妹er but she was left behind in the running, finishing second with a time of  二.0 五hr.

Preparing for the comeback, Ly swims more than  六0km per month while training hard in running every day.

"This is a season of strong waves in Đà Nẵng's beach. It helps me to practise and be familiar with the competition environment and conditions,"大众said Ly who wanted to cut her swi妹妹ing time five minutes to  四0min this weekend.

The Đà Nẵng-based athlete also took part in number of marathons to improve her running skills. After months, she made a PB of  四 七min in a  一0km race, but still wanted to run faster.

In addition to the competitions at the two-day event, organisers also hold many sideline activities including talks with famous athletes and celebrity-competitors, and music performances. VNS
