Specifically, in the men’s 100m mixed content, Phuoc broke the national record made by himself in 2010 (57 seconds 68) with 57 seconds 12.

The second gold medal is for the men’s 100m freestyle category. He hit the finish line with 51 seconds 41. Though this result lags far behind Phuoc’s own record set in 2010 (49 seconds to 50), but it is enough for him to win the gold medal.
