CALOY Yulo won his second gold medal in gymnastics after dominating the floor exercise in the 30th Southeast Asian Games on Tuesday at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
The 19-year-old Yulo scored 14.700 in the final of his pet event in a fitting follow-up to his victory in the men’s individual all-around on Sunday.
The floor exercise is the same event that Yulo won during last October’s 48th Artistic Gymnastics World Championship in Stuttgart, Germany.
Surintornta Tikumporn of Thailand finished second with a score of 13.833, while Mat Asri Zul Bahrin of Malaysia ranked third with a score of 13.767.
Reyland Capellan of the Philippines, the champion of the event two years ago in Malaysia, placed fifth with a score of 13.433.
