Married couple bring home two more chess golds

QUANG NINH (VNA) – Married couple Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son and Pham Le Thao Nguyen enjoyed their second big day by triumphing in the men’s and the women’s individual rapid chess at the ongoing 31st Southeast Asian (SEA) Games almost at the same time yesterday.

Nguyen outlasted Malaysia’s Sim Jia Ru while her husband, grandmaster Son, defeated Megaranto Susanto of Indonesia to enter the finals against opponents from Singapore.

Nguyen claimed victory over Gong Qianyun just a few minutes before Son’s win over Tin Jingyao, taking two more gold medals for Vietnam at the regional games.
