Vietnam wins Olympic race before London 2012 begins!
Well there is the Mathematic Olympics! Vietnam has been in the top three countries in the Mathematic Olympics (a maths competition run each year with 180 countries competing) for over a decade, yes, top three overall.
This beat the USA, UK, Germany and wait for it, India. It is why they are such great software developers and why NashTech (Harvey Nash plc) is proud to employ 4,500 in its Offshore centres.
Now it is also interesting that the American 2012 Olympic team will be dressed by Ralph Lauren of course. It is very likely that the USA will top the medal table so by default will Vietnam because that is where some of the team uniforms are made. I suspect that will be the case for a number of the top teams at 2012.
But seriously, Vietnam's Olympic 2012 squad arrived in London to start their preparations at Bradford College to beat the two silvers won in previous games. There are 18 qualified Vietnamese competitors at 2012 covering Athletics, Badminton, Fencing, Gymnastics, Judo, Rowing, Shooting, Swimming, Taekwondo, Weightlifting, and Wrestling. You can find the details here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnam_at_the_2012_Summer_Olympics
I will be cheering the Vietnamese team along with our 4,500 developers in Vietnam. If they are half as good and dedicated as the Harvey Nash team in Hanoi and HCMC then lots of medals will be won.
