    KUALA LUMPUR - Kaitlin De Guzman added two more medals to her collection in the 29th Southeast Asian Games gymnastics on Wednesday at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Center (MiTEC).

    The 17-year-old De Guzman captured the silver medal in the floor exercise, scoring 13.025 in her routine, and brought a bronze in the balance beam when she scored 12.3.

    With the result, De Guzman became the most bemedalled athlete thus far for the Philippines in the SEA Games after capturing the gold in the uneven bars on Tuesday.

    Farah Ann of Malaysia won the gold, scoring 13.450 in her masterful performance in the event, while Rifda Irfanaluthf of Indonesia took the bronze with a score of 13.

    De Guzman was bested by Rifda (13.125) and Tan Ing Yueh of Malaysia (13.1) in the balance beam.

    Reyland Capellan, meanwhile, settled for a bronze in the men's vault after scoring 13.975. Le Thanh Tung of Vietnam won the gold (14.450), while Agus Adi Prayoko of Indonesia got silver (14.350).

    Capellan also won a gold on Tuesday in the men's floor exercise and the silver-medal finish of De Guzman prevented the Philippines from sweeping the event.
