SEA Games: Yulo takes parallel bars silver, Finnegan places second in balance beam

Two more silvers added to the collection of the Philippine gymnastics team.

Aleah Finnegan and Caloy Yulo finished second for the national gymnasts in the women’s balance beam and men’s parallel bars, respectively, of the 31st Southeast Asian Games, Monday at the Quan Ngua Sports Palace in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Finnegan earlier made a costly mistake in her beam routine during the individual all-around and apparatus qualifications. This time, she made sure her connections and tumbling passes would work.

Eventually, the Louisiana State University student-athlete ended with 12.367 – 0.200 behind eventual gold medalist Rachel Li Wen Yeoh of Malaysia.

For his part, Yulo paced the pack with 14.900 in the parallel bars, using the program that saw him take the silver in the last year’s World Gymnastics Championships.

The 23-year-old star’s lead carried on, before reigning Games champion Dinh Phuong Thanh pulled off a similarly impressive routine which overtook Yulo’s with 15.133.

Lucia Mari Manzano ended eighth in the balance beam with 10.000. Then Juancho Besana scored 11.900 to finish seventh in parallel bars.
