Vietnam Sports at the 31st SEA Games: Quality and Quality from Group 1st - 1

Winning as many as 205 gold medals was considered beyond the plan when Vietnam had only set a target of 140-170 gold medals before the competition. However, the fact that it is far beyond the target is easily explained, rather than arguing that the professional prediction error of TTVN is too large.

The Olympics is a too big arena, and the Asian Games is a medium-sized stadium, which is why the sports world is confident of winning 5-7 gold medals at this Continental Congress. Unfortunately, the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games has been postponed indefinitely, and it is unclear when it will return.
