In Phuket, Vietnamese athletes also pocketed 19 silvers and 14 bronzes.

The Asian championship featured 370 athletes from 15 countries and territories. This was the 18th edition as it has been organised since 1976.

Viet Nam sent 41 strongest finswimmers including SEA Games champions and junior stars to the event.

During the championship, officials took part in a meeting on the establishment of the Southeast Asian Finswimming Federation.

Representatives of the countries contributed their opinions on the development of finswimming in the region, thereby reaching an agreement to establish the federation.

"If the Southeast Asian Finswimming Federation is established, we believe that the sport will receive more investment sources and athletes will have more tournaments to compete for higher success," Nguyen Ngoc Anh, head of Viet Nam team said./.
