Hundreds of athletes last week competed in various sports within the framework of the third Olympic 2030 sporting tournament for Vietnamese entrepreneurs, so named as it is hosted by the 2030 Businessmen Club under the Saigon Times Club in partnership with the Vietnam Olympic Committee. 

During the tournament lasting until December 3, the contestants will compete in 15 sports, including football, table tennis, badminton, swimming, bowling, billiards, Chinese chess, futsal, golf, archery, cycling, mountain bike racing, off-road racing and tennis.

In particular, more than 50 contestants competed in the table tennis and archery events that took place at the Phu Tho Indoor Stadium in HCMC’s District 11 and at the Youth Cultural House in the downtown area respectively. 

This year’s sporting event has seen a new record with 24 men’s football teams attending in six categories of competition, and four women’s football teams.

The Olympic 2030 tournament is intended to raise awareness of a healthy lifestyle among entrepreneurs, foster friendship among business people and lay the groundwork for a sporting festival for Vietnamese entrepreneurs.
