Caloy Yulo bags bronze in All Japan Apparatus Championships

Caloy Yulo showcased his capabilities for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics after taking the bronze in the parallel bars at the 2021 All-Japan Apparatus Championships at the Takasaki Arena, Sunday.

The 21-year-old is currently looking to improve on the other apparatuses as he will be competing as well in the individual all-around event in Tokyo next month. And this result brings forth good news.

Yulo took the third-place honors with a final score of 14.966 after adding up a difficulty score of 6.400 and an execution score of 8.566.

Japanese Yusuke Tanaka and Kaito Sugimoto both clinched the gold with 15.400.

In the previous day’s qualification, the 2019 Southeast Asian Games silver medalist in the apparatus had settled for seventh place with 14.733.

Yulo was the second Filipino to qualify for the Tokyo Games after taking 10th place in the individual all-around event of the 2019 World Championships. He took it up several notches higher and won it all in the floor exercise.
