Vietnamese wushu artists and weightlifters won three gold medals on Tuesday. Wushu martial artist Pham Quoc Khanh picked up a gold medal by scoring 9.65, much higher than his rivals.

“I’m happy to have won. I have gotten up really early every day since the tournament began. Athletes’ health has suffered because of the temperature difference - hot outdoors and cold indoors. I didn’t perform well yesterday because of the pressure to win a medal. Today I just told myself to do the best I can. I owe my gold medal to my coach, my fellow athletes, my family, and the fans back home,” Khanh said.
