Affirming the position of terrain cycling

In recent years, Hoa Binh has gradually asserted its strength in terrain cycling. Although there are still many difficulties and limitations in terms of facilities and training equipment, the remarkable achievements that the riders have achieved in the past time have contributed to affirming the interest and investment in the right direction of the province.

At the 31st SEA Games program, Vietnamese cycling team excellently won 4 gold medals and 2 silver medals in the individual and team events, exceeding the set target.

In addition to the brilliant achievements of the terrain cycling sport, the tug of war team also competed quite successfully, winning 1 gold and 3 silver medals, exceeding the set target. This achievement has contributed to helping the sports delegation of Hoa Binh province rank 42nd place out of the 65 provinces, cities and sectors in the country, and 5th place out of the 19 participating mountainous provinces.

Comparing with some other provinces and cities, the ethnic sports such as crossbow shooting, tug of war, stick pushing are considered the strengths of the province.

Typically: at the 12th National Sports Competition for the Ethnic Minorities, we won 4 gold medals, 6 silver medals, 8 bronze medals, ranked 3rd out of the 17 participating delegations; At the 15th Festival of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Ethnic Minorities in the Northwest region, in 2022, we won 11 gold medals, 7 silver medals, 4 bronze medals, and we excellently won first place in the entire delegation of traditional ethnic sports...
