After joining the Nha Trang Dolphins Club for the first time in the VBA 2022 semi-finals, young pitcher Phung Quoc Hung (Melvin Phung) immediately went on a short trip with his close friends. The selected location is Tram Tau, a remote highland district of Yen Bai province, in the Northwest mountainous region. Accompanying the 1.85m-high defender, there was also a young athlete of the Thang Long Warriors Club, Dau Trung Kien. Two famous talents in the capital’s basketball community choose motorbikes as a means of transportation to easily explore the life and culture of the highlanders.
Besides the two throwers born in 2000, defender Nguyen Ky Quan also has a passion for exploring mountains and forests, immersed in nature. The player born in 1997 has a group of friends with the same hobby of traveling and has visited the mountains of Ha Giang, Da Lat, Bao Loc…
To be in harmony with nature, Ky Quan often chooses a well-ventilated location at the riverside with friends to set up a tent to camp and sleep overnight. The experience of bathing in the stream, manually marinating, grilling and enjoying the cuisine is kept as a souvenir and widely shared with fans.

When not competing, Nguyen Ky Quan also tried the challenge of rowing sup in the Saigon River. The athlete from the Ton Duc Thang University basketball team has just returned to the professional basketball environment at VBA 2022 and wore the Danang Dragons Club shirt. The pitcher who used to be the mainstay of Ho Chi Minh City Wings Club for many years gradually regained his form after a long time without playing professionally. With an ideal body shape of 1.88m and a good skill set, Nguyen Ky Quan is one of the promising internal soldiers at VBA.
