Generali Vietnam has sponsored the package life product “VITA - Live Confidently” for two talented Vietnamese brothers who reached the Top 5 of the recent “Britain’s Got Talent” TV program, in a move to recognize the circus performers and encourage them to pursue their career.

With the superior benefits of “VITA - Live Confidently” for the families of the Giang brothers - Giang Quoc Co, 34, and Giang Quoc Nghiep, 28 - they can feel assured while following their passion and enjoying their lives.

With their impressive performance, when Quoc Co, blindfolded, balanced Quoc Nghiep head-to-head and moved down a set of stairs and then up the stairs, backwards, the two brothers won acclaim from all four judges in the final on June 3.

Then, with Quoc Nghiep head-to-head with Quoc Co, the two brothers again stunned the audience by stepping along a row of poles before leaping over a meter to a platform.

Despite not winning the top prize, the Giang brothers won the hearts of millions of viewers and became the pride of Vietnam for introducing the country’s circus talent to the world.

It actually wasn’t the first time the two brothers have received attention from an international audience. In 2016 they made the Guinness Book of World Records, organized in Spain, for conquering 90 stairs in 52 seconds while balancing head-to-head.

On an online talk show, Quoc Co and Quoc Nghiep said their breathtaking performance in the final was a dream they had long cherished. Their performance was not only artistically creative but also fulfilled their desire to present Vietnam’s image to friends around the world. The two brothers decided not to use any kind of protective equipment, in order to show the resilience and bravery of the Vietnamese people.

Preparing such an act involves many accidents and injuries, some life-threatening. It also involves a silent sacrifice from their wives and families, who live in fear of the worst.

Understanding such concerns and admiring the talent and bravery of the two brothers, Generali Vietnam Life decided to provide them with the “VITA - Live Confidently” package and provide peace of mind to their families. “We have had the opportunity to see Quoc Co and Quoc Nghiep perform many times but this is the first time we have heard of the difficulties and challenges in pursuing such a career,” said Ms. Tina Nguyen, CEO of Generali Vietnam. “We hope this gift will give them the motivation to continue fulfilling their ambition and again prove the courageous spirit of the Vietnamese people.”

Established in 1831, Generali is an independent Italian Group and among the world’s leading insurers, with a presence in over 60 countries. With more than 74,000 employees worldwide and 55 million clients, the Group has a leading position in Europe and an increasingly significant presence in Asia and South America.

After seven years, Generali Vietnam currently has some 200,000 policyholders, including individuals and insured employees of domestic and foreign businesses in Vietnam. It has been one of the fastest growing companies within the Generali Group and in Vietnam over recent years.
