Gamers team eye Indoor gold

Duong Vi Khoa, the team's head coach, said, "Although the team is only aiming for a gold, we've got some skilful players who have been training hard. Viet Nam's e-sport team will do its best and hopefully spur the development of the sport in the country."

VietNamNet Bridge – Viet Nam's e-sports team will take part in the third Asian Indoor Games (AIG) with the aim of bringing home a gold medal.

Khoa, who has devoted himself to e-sports since it appeared in Viet Nam, said, "I paid attention to the e-sports event seven years ago. In 2003, Viet Nam had ADSL, and I had a strong attachment to the event. Those who had an interest, got together and we organised tournaments ourselves."

The team includes four coaches and 16 gamers convened in Ha Noi at the weekend and took part a training course to prepare for the Games organised by the Viet Nam Multimedia Corporation.

This event will take place at Ha Noi's Bach Khoa Gymnasium on November 1-4 with the participation of 200 gamers from 15 teams to compete for six sets of medals in the individual and team events.

Viet Nam's gamers will play including FIFA 09, Starcraft: Broodwar, Counter Strike, Dota All-stars.

According to e-sports experts, To Trung Hieu is expected to lead the team to a medal in this event after he showed his great talent in the World Cyber Games Asian Champions in July.

Viet Nam emerged at the World Cyber Games Asian Champions with two gold wins in Dota All-stars and FIFA 2009 after beating 13 countries from around Asia, including South Korea, China, Singapore, Malaysia, India, Australia and New Zealand.
