PHNOM PENH— Andrew Kim Remolino pocketed a silver medal in aquathlon, providing comfort for Team Philippines after Raven Faith Alcoseba missed the podium on Saturday at the 32nd Southeast Asian Games.

Remolino, a two-time SEA Games triathlon silver medalist, brought his act to the 500-meter swim, 2.5-km run event and clocked 15 minutes and seven seconds behind gold medalist Rashif Yaqin (14:28) of Indonesia.

Singapore’s Bryce Sheng Chong placed third (15:39) in the race held in Kep, a sleepy seaside town 3.5-hour drive from the Games’ hub here.
