¡Sube la temperatura esta semana! Se aproxima una ola de calor.

Turn up the heat this week! A heatwave is approaching.

Oanh made history at the 32nd Southteast Asian (SEA) Games on May 9 when she became the first athlete to win gold medals in both the 1,500m and 3,000m women’s hurdling events.

Just three days later, Oanh found herself once again atop the podium when she won a gold medal in the women’s 10,000-meter race.

She asserted that she had won a total of four gold medals at the 32nd Southeast Asian Games, which were held in Cambodia from May 5 to May 17.

Oanh, affectionately known in the Southeast Asian running scene as the ‘runner without lungs’, is one of the most decorated athletes in the history of the event.

She was born in 1995 in the northern Vietnamese province of Bac Giang, about 50 kilometers from Hanoi.

She is the seventh child in a family of farmers. In her early teens, she developed a love for running and, at 15, was given the opportunity to join the provincial athletics team.

At the age of 17, Oanh was selected to join the national track-and-field team, which was led by coach Tran Van Sy.

She was voted the best female track-and-field athlete in Vietnam for both 2019 and 2022. Her impressive performances in her four consecutive Southeast Asian Games appearances have made her one of the most important members of the Vietnam national team.

In addition to her work as a professional athlete, Oanh also runs an online store specializing in clothes and shoes.

Her professional running career has had a roller coaster of highs and lows.

While she has long suffered from insomnia, especially while preparing for important competitions, a more sinister health condition almost forced her onto the sidelines permanently.

In 2014, she was diagnosed with acute nephritis, resulting in her neck and face swelling. This could have potentially ended her career.

Doctors forbade her from eating oily, fatty, and salty foods, leading to a lack of iodide and causing her flexures to shrink. Her disease forced her into a state of depression and caused her severe social anxiety.

After six months of treatment, Oanh was able to return to the track.

Nine years ago, she was virtually unknown. Now, she is considered a symbol of both Vietnamese and Southeast Asian athletics.

At the SEA Games 32 in Cambodia in 2023, Nguyen Thi Oanh achieved a remarkable feat by winning two gold medals in just about 30 minutes, the first of its kind in the history of Vietnamese sports.

Oanh is a historic figure, as they have become the first athlete in history to win four gold medals at a single edition of the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.

“The demanding and difficult race schedule provided me with the motivation to give it my all and I felt immense joy and satisfaction when I won,” said Oanh during an exchange with the youth in Ho Chi Minh City.

This is what I wanted to achieve for Vietnamese sports: to bring them to the forefront of the world’s sporting stage.

Throughout the 10,000-meter race, Oanh maintained her lead despite the encouragement from teammates, media, and Vietnamese spectators at the Morodok Techo Stadium. Her persistence paid off, as she won her fourth gold.

In the final stages of the race, she sped up to the front of the pack, leaving her opponents in the dust and crossing the finish line first with a time of 35:11:53.

With her gold medal in the 10,000-meter category, Oanh contributed four out of the twelve gold medals won by the Vietnamese track-and-field team.
