The athletes are competing at the 1st Sports Festival in Muong Chieng commune (Da Bac) in 2021.
Every afternoon, the sports fields of each hamlet are filled with a joyful, exciting and exciting atmosphere of sports matches. Regardless of age, gender, everyone is excited to compete. They do not care too much about the results of winning - losing, but the main purpose is to exchange, have fun, entertain, exercise. Volleyball and football are the two most popular sports among the people.
At present, the mass sport movement is spreading widely throughout the hamlets in the commune. Not only the young people but also the children, the elderly, the women, the civil servants, the employees... are actively participating in the daily practice. Thanks to that, the commune has nearly 400 people participating in regular physical training and 150 sports families up to now. Every year, the commune organizes from 3 to 4 sports tournaments, attracting hundreds of athletes to compete and other people to cheer enthusiastically, especially on holidays and Tet. From the sports tournaments of the commune, many typical faces with excellent competition results have been selected and discovered, and the sports teams of Muong Chieng commune have been established to participate in a number of district-level sports tournaments. In the whole commune there are 3 clubs in football, table tennis, badminton and 16 grassroots sports teams.
The highlight in the movement of mass sports of Muong Chieng commune is the 1st Communal Sports Congress in 2021. Taking place in May 2022, there were 5 competitive contents, including chess, crossbow shooting, tug of war, volleyball and football with about 450 athletes. The organization of Sports Festival at the grassroots level, many promising athletes appeared. They are Bui Thi Luyen (Dam Phe hamlet), Xa Van Vui (Na Muoi village) in crossbow shooting; Quach Thanh Vinh (Dam Phe hamlet), Vi Van Nhieu (Na Muoi village) in chess; Ha Manh Ban (Muong Chieng High School), Xa Van Thien (Ha hamlet) in football and men's and women's tug of war are the strengths of Na Muoi village...
At the 7th Sports Congress of Da Bac District, in 2021, nearly 30 athletes from Muong Chieng commune attended. The achievements are as follows: winning the first prize in crossbow shooting in the men's and women's team content; the second place in men's soccer.
In order to achieve many important results in the mass sport movement, over the past time, the commune has integrated the campaign "All people do exercises following the great example of Uncle Ho” in association with the movement "All people union to build a cultural life”. It is necessary to promote propaganda, socialize, mobilize the resources and regularly organize the sports exchanges and competitions to improve professional qualifications for sports workers and maintain and widening the clubs and teams at the grassroots levels…
like many remote and disadvantaged communes, the system of the cultural and sports institutions in Muong Chieng commune is still limited. After the merger, there are 8 hamlets in the commune, but only 4 hamlets have a sports training ground and 1 yard at the headquarters of the Communal People's Committee. The above situation has not met the needs of the people to practice and compete in sports.
Mr. Sa Van Khieu, a socio-cultural officer of Muong Chieng commune said: "The mass sport movement is developing, spreading widely to the people in the commune. The people also gradually have access to many new sports and the quality of the movement is step by step improving. In the coming time, the commune will continue promoting the implementation of the campaign "All people do exercises following the great example of Uncle Ho”, gradually bringing sports and physical training into the people's daily habits; mobilizing the resources, paying attention to and investing in facilities; diversifying in content and forms of training, maintaining and organizing many competition and exchange activities; strengthening propaganda work…”.
