HANOY: Timor-Leste’s Felisbarto de Deus, holding a Vietnamese flag in his hand, cheers fans on his second silver medal at the 31st Southeast Asian Games.

A day after winning the silver medal at the historic SEA Games in the men’s 5,000m event, Davis made Timur Leste proud by taking another medal in the men’s 10,000m.

The two silver medals Davis has won are the only medals for the team at Timor Leste so far.

Extensive efforts helped keep East Timoris in second place, leaving only Vietnam’s veteran Nguyen Van Lee behind, who completed his golden double with a time of 32: 17.34.

It was the 35-year-old runner’s second gold and second time surpassing Lai Deus, the first time at 5,000 meters.
