WGC: Carlos Yulo suffers mishap in floor exercise, ends up in 7th

Carlos Yulo suffered an early mishap to finish in seventh place in the apparatus final of the men’s floor exercise at the 51st FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships, Saturday evening (Philippine time) at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

The 2019 World champion in this apparatus was on a high after scoring 15’s in the qualification and in the all-around final just the previous night, and he planned to do it again this time.

Yulo had a perfect start on his first tumbling pass until just at that moment he went for a front double pike where he slipped into a sitting position. He recovered but his execution score was heavily reduced to 7.100, for an eventual total of 13.300.

Hometown bet Gianni Regini-Moran bested the eight-man field with 14.533, just 0.033 ahead of recently crowned all-around champion Hashimoto Daiki of Japan’s 14.500. Doi Ryosuke, also from Japan, rounded up the podium with 14.266.

Yulo will try to keep his two medals from the previous Worlds edition as he defends his vault title and shoots for a podium finish in the parallel bars when he competes on Sunday in the said apparatuses’ final starting at 9:30 p.m. (Philippine time).
