The Cong beat Bien Phong 21-25, 25-23, 25-18, 25-9 to triumph at the Military Volleyball Open tournament’s men category on June 29 in Ha Noi.

Making full use of their advantage as the host, Bien Phong established their domination in the first set with the outstanding performance of spiker Nguyen Huu Ha.
