Top names like the champion of the 2018 ASIAD long jump Bui Thi Thu Thao and swimmer Nguyen Thi Anh Vien are set to receive the sponsorship.

Vuong Bich Thang, head of the administration, said if selected coaches and athletes cannot remain their form, achievements and morals, they will lose funding and other athletes will get it.
