MANILA--As good as advertised.
World champion Carlos Yulo lived up to his billing as he delivered a total of seven golds and five silvers for the Philippines in the two-day scheduled Men's Artistics Gymnastics event of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games inside the Rizal Memorial Coliseum, Dec. 4.
Yulo nabbed his two gold medals yesterday with outstanding performances in the All-Around and Floor Exercise categories before settling for runner-up finishes at the Pommel Horse, Still Rings, Vault, Parallel Bars, and Horizontal Bar categories.
The 19-year-old wonderkid captured his fifth and final silver medal earlier at the Parallel Bars competition when his 14.600 points fell short against Vietnam's Dinh Phuong Thanh's 14.800 points.
