Dung’s victory confirmed a third ticket to Rio this summer for Vietnamese fencers after Nguyễn Thị Như Hoa (epee) and Vũ Thành An (sabre) secured their own tickets on Monday. Hoa topped the competition in her category and An earned a spot among the top three.

Nguyễn Tiến Nhật (epee), who was the first Vietnamese fencer to qualify for the Olympics back in 2012, will miss out on Rio after his earlier defeat against Alexander Chernykh from Kyrgysztan./.
