Vietnamese runners will receive a VND 100 million (US$5,000) prize money if they qualify for the 2012 London Olympics during the athletics competition at the 26th SEA Games in Indonesia from 12-16 November.
The Vietnam Athletics Federation (VAF) made the announcement last week. The country is represented by a 41 member team which includes middle distance runner Truong Thanh Hang, sprinter Vu Thi Huong and deathlete, Vu Van Huyen.
Hang won the gold medals at the SEA Games from 2005 to 2009 and is once again Vietnam's golden hope.
Meanwhile top sprinter, Va Thi Huong has recovered from an unjury and will compete in the women's 100 and 200m in Indonesia. She clocked 11.50s at the Mekong Delta Athletics Championship last month.
