    The 22-year-old gymnast arrived in the country on Tuesday accompanied by Japanese coach Munehiro Kugimiya and physiotherapist Junpei Konno.

    Yulo, who won the gold in the vault and silver in the parallel bars during the 50th FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships last year in Kitakyushu, Japan, began testing the world standard gymnastics venue upon arriving here.

    It was the first time the Manila-born gymnast went back to the country after winning two golds and five silver medals during the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.

    He also won a gold medal in the floor exercise during the 2019 World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany.

    Yulo, Kugimiya, and Konno are the special guests during the inauguration of the venue renovated to the tune of P7 million courtesy of the MVP Sports Foundation.
