In the first time participating in the SEA Games, athlete Felisberto de Deus brought home 2 silver medals for the Timor Leste team in the 10000m and 5000m races. Not only succeeding on the track, the 23-year-old athlete also won the hearts of Vietnamese fans when holding hands to celebrate with two host athletes, Nguyen Van Lai and Le Van Thao.
Then, he appeared with the flag of Timor Leste on his shoulder and holding a Vietnamese flag to celebrate with the home country’s fans present at My Dinh stadium. This beautiful image immediately caused a storm on social networks, where netizens admired Felisberto’s tireless efforts and his affection for the host country.
After that, a Vietnamese fan went to the hotel where Felisberto was staying to give the athlete a baseball cap and Vietnamese specialties. And today, when he returned to Timor Leste to attend the public celebration, he still did not forget to bring those gifts and the Vietnamese flag with him.
After a brief and solemn ceremony, Felisberto de Deus and other medalists from the Timor Leste troupe paraded through the streets. Timor Leste fans were in large numbers to greet the heroes, creating a buzzing scene.
SEA Games is not only a sports competition but also an opportunity for people of Southeast Asian countries to get closer and closer. Felisberto de Deus with a gift from Vietnamese fans is a typical image of the meaning of the SEA Games.
