MANILA, Philippines—Irish Magno’s quest for the gold continues after she lost to a familiar foe in the women’s flyweight final at the 31st Southeast Asian Games in Vietnam on Sunday.

For the second straight time, Magno found Vietnam’s Thi Tam Nguyen a hard nut to crack as he settled for the silver medal anew.
