WGC: Carlos Yulo third in all-around qualis, makes three apparatus finals


Despite some hiccups at the start of the day, Filipino gymnastics star Carlos Yulo bounced back huge to amass 84.664 points and booked his place in all-around finals of the 51st World Artistic Gymnastics Championships at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

The impressive total puts him in third place for the all-around finals just 0.001 margin behind reigning Olympic all-around champion Daiki Hashimoto of Japan. Another Japanese in Wataru Tanigawa leads the pack with 84.731.

The total came also on the strength of the marks he incurred to make three apparatus finals and to be set as a reserve in another.

The 2019 World champion in floor exercise closed his qualification with a bang after scoring a huge 15.266 in the said apparatus, half a point ahead of Japan’s Ryosuke Doi’s 14.766, to end on top of the heap.

Yulo also proved topnotch on vault as he opened his bid for a back-to-back title in the said apparatus with a total score of 14.849 for second place, despite some hiccups in a new skill he tried for his first vault. The Manila-born standout had a low landing on the Ri Se Gwang II and a subsequent step out for 14.733 but made up for it with a tidy Kasamatsu double full for 14.966.

The 2021 silver medalist on the parallel bars also made the said apparatus’ final after a fourth-place finish here in the qualification with 15.300.
He also showed some improvements in the still rings with 14.066, which is good for 10th place and a spot as the second reserve.

The men’s all-around final is scheduled on Friday, while the apparatus final for floor exercise is on Saturday. Yulo will close out his stint in the Worlds with two apparatus finals on vault and parallel bars on Sunday.
