HANOI— Timor Leste’s Felisberto de Deus, with a Vietnamese flag in his hand, waved at the fans cheering on his second silver medal at the 31st Southeast Asian Games.

One day after the historic SEA Games silver in the men’s 5,000m event, Deus continued to make Timor Leste proud with another medal in the men’s 10,000m.
