Caloy Yulo misses back-to-back world floor title

Caloy Yulo suffered a huge mistake that saw him finish in fifth place and dethroned in the final of the floor exercise of the 2021 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships at the Kitakyushu General Gymnasium, Kitakyushu, Japan.

The 21-year-old scored high on difficulty, but a botched landing in a tumbling pass caused him a huge 0.300 in deductions for a total of 14.566.

Yulo once more started with his signature double layout—double full-out. He stuck the landing perfectly, setting the tone for his routine that was given a difficulty score of 6.600.

However, on his fourth tumbling pass, he went out of his landing line. He eventually stepped out of bounds, despite an attempt to keep himself inside the allowed area.

Nonetheless, Yulo soldiered on and finished strong to salvage the finish with an execution score of 8.266.

Nicola Bartolini bagged his first-ever world title with a total score of 14.800. He was just 0.34 points ahead of Minami Kazuki of Japan with 14.766.

Finland’s Emil Soravuo snagged the bronze medal from Ryu Sunghyun of South Korea with 14.700 against the latter’s 14.600.

Yulo will attempt to bounce back on his two chances at a world title as he competes in the finals of both vault and parallel bars on Sunday.
