Carlos Yulo wins third straight men’s all-around gold medal in SEA Games
PHNOM PENH—Carlos Yulo asserted his mastery in the men’s all-around at the 32nd Southeast Asian Games for the third consecutive time.
The Filipino gymnastics darling leaned on his favorite apparatuses—the vault and parallel bars—and was unmatched in the floor exercise where he was the 2019 world champion.
Yulo scored 15,000 in the vault, the apparatus he ruled in the 2021 world championships, and 14,950 in the parallel bars.
The most bemedalled Filipino athlete in the Hanoi SEA Games last year with five gold medals, Yulo wowed the judges and the crowd at the National Olympic Stadium with a magnificent routine in the floor exercise with 14,350 points.
He compiled 84,000, way ahead of silver medalist Thanh Tung Le (80,450) and bronze finisher Phuong Thanh Dinh (78,150), both from Vietnam.
Led by Yulo, the Philippines also won silver in the men’s team event with 305.25 points behind Vietnam’s 313 points.
