Before the World Cup shooting took place in India, Tran Quoc Cuong ranked 17th in the content of 10m male pistols. He needs to go one step further to get tickets to the Olympic Games that will open on July 21 in Japan.

Quoc Cuong’s performance was inferior to his teammate Nguyen Dinh Thanh, reaching 573 points, ranking 13th. Phan Xuan Chuyen exam only got 566 points.
World Cup shooting in India is the last chance to shoot Vietnamese guns to win tickets to the Olympics. However, because all three marksmen who entered the competition failed, Vietnam would have no one to replace Hoang Xuan Vinh to compete at the Olympics.
At the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, Xuan Vinh brought back the first gold medal in history for Vietnam when he topped the 10m men’s airgun content, with 202.5 points. He later won another silver gold 50m men’s pistols. However, due to the age of 46, Xuan Vinh withdrew from the national team and did not participate in the race to win Olympic tickets in Japan.
Quoc Cuong was expected to replace Xuan Vinh, competing at the Olympics, but failed.

He joined the team in 1995 after winning the gold medal at the National Sports Congress – five years ahead of his peers Hoang Xuan Vinh. From 2001 up to now, Quoc Cuong has participated in nine SEA Games, won dozens of gold medals by team and individual.
