Son, 21, a tall 1.93m and a professional Taekwondo athlete who won the gold medal at the national sports games 2014, is widely tipped to win this year's title.

He surprised the judges when, for the traditional costumes round, he wore a military uniform, though he plans to wear Vietnam's traditional long dress with a dragon motiff for the finals on March 7.
