With this result, athlete Trinh Van Vinh will face an 8-year ban on competition with a fine of up to 5,000 USD. However, that is not all.

"As soon as the IWF announcement was removed, we removed the Vinh name from the national team list. This is very painful for sportsmen like us and has a great impact on sports at home.

He is likely to be deprived of his medal in the recent Games (he won 1 gold medal and 2 silver medals) and deprived him of the right to play for a long time. We are currently awaiting the IWF's final decision before proceeding with the decision, "said Do Dinh Khang – deputy director of the Department of High Performance Sports 2, head of the Weightlifting Department of the General Department of Physical Training and Sport.

Trinh Van Vinh was born in 1995 and was considered one of the talents of the Vietnamese weightlifting. He won the world gold medal in 2017, the 2017 SEA Games champion and ASIAD HCB 2018 weighed 61 kg and invested heavily in the sports sector to participate in major international tournaments.

According to reports, after passing the doping test and winning the HCB at ASIAD in August of last year, Van Vinh was returned to the locality to practice and participate in the National Sports Congress. During this time, the IWF doctors arrived to get a sample of Vinh and gave a positive result for doping.

According to Trinh Van Vinh himself, this athlete used to treat external injuries without asking the technical team or specialized doctors, even if he did not know what type of medication to use.
