No medal but speed skater Magno sets new personal best

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Speed skater Kathryn Magno set a new personal best time, but it was not enough to get her to the podium in the women's 1000-m event of the 29th Southeast Asian Games on Wednesday at the Empire City Skating Rink.

Magno was the Philippines' lone representative in the race, which also marked the country's final event of the 2017 SEA Games here in Kuala Lumpur.
