Hoang Anh Tuan is worth his weight in gold

When the Vietnamese weightlifter Hoang Anh Tuan returned to Bac Ninh province after winning a silver medal at the Beijing Olympic Games he was hailed like a returning conquering hero. Tuan continues to work at achieving new goals. He is busy preparing for the Southeast Asian Games 2009 in Laos. He also recently invested more than VND1 billion ($57,300) in a 200sqm-physical education club for weightlifters with billiards tables, table tennis tables, a sports store and a café on the second floor. Hopefully this will be the cradle for the next generation of Vietnamese weightlifting Olympians.
