Nguyen made her official debut for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, where she competed for the women's middleweight class (63 kg).

At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, Nguyen qualified for the second time in the women's 63 kg class, after finishing second from the Asian Weightlifting Championships in Kanazawa, Japan.[4] Nguyen placed fifth in this event, as she successfully lifted 100 kg in the single-motion snatch, and hoisted 125 kg in the two-part, shoulder-to-overhead clean and jerk, for a total of 225 kg.[5][6]
