MANILA, Philippines — Aries Toledo failed to complete a “three-peat” in men’s decathlon after settling for a silver medal in the 31st Southeast Asian Games on Sunday at the My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Toledo, a back-to-back winner in the 2017 and 2019 SEA Games, was dethroned by Thailand’s Suttisak Singkhon.

It was Toledo’s best finish in the past three biennial meets, surpassing his 7,433 points in the 2017 Kuala Lumpur Games and 7,033 in 2019. However, his best was only good for silver.
