Yesterday’s morning, October 2nd, 2022, the Temple of Literature, Hanoi was broadcast live with hundreds of students and teachers from Hanoi - Amsterdam High School. They all gathered there to support the “climber” Vu Nguyen Son in Road to Mount Olympia season 22 finals.

Many teachers, students and parents have been present since early morning to prepare a  few final steps before the start of this highly anticipated finals. “Fire Nguyen Son/ Winner Ams”, “Son Baka/ Came to Slay”, “Hanoi - Amsterdam: Nguyen Son on the roll of honor”, etc. Those were the slogans, wishes and messages from teachers and friends that had fueled Nguyen Son’s strengths and boosted his bravery to embark on the journey of seizing the laurel wreath.
