The team's best time is 3:30.81 that brought them gold at the Asian Relay Championship last week.

Two SEA Games champions Nguyen Trung Cuong will compete in the men's 3,000m steeplechase and Huynh Thi My Tien will take part in the women's 100m hurdles.

Young talented Tran Thi Nhi Yen who won silvers from the Asian U20 Championship will run in the women's 100m and 200m events.

Nhi is expected to take a wildcard to take part in the Paris Olympics in case Vietnam cannot win an official place.
