Ngoan, who won a gold at the Karate 1-Premier League’s Leipzig leg and a bronze at the Dubai leg last year, will compete in the women’s 61kg kumite (combat) category, while Southeast Asian Games winner Phuong will take part in the women’s individual kata (performance) class.

Both of them are seeking points to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

“Each tournament will be a practice opportunity so that our athletes can sharpen their skills and gain experience to improve their level,” said Vu Son Ha, head of the Karate Department.

After the Paris event, there will be K1 competitions in Dubai next month, followed by Rotterdam in March, Rabat in April, Istanbul in June, Berlin in September and Tokyo in October.

Ngoan and her teammate can also collect points from the Asian Games in Indonesia in August and the world championships in Spain in November. —
