CARLOS Yulo will have to settle with just two gold medals to his name as he took home his fifth silver in the 30th Southeast Asian Games artistic gymnastics competitions Wednesday at Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
Bridesmaid once again was the 19-year-old in the men's horizontal bar after earning a score of 13.667, a mere 0.100 away from eventual gold winner Ding Puong Thanh of Vietnam who had 13.767.
There's no question, though, that the charming gymnast from Leveriza gave everyone a smile with his magnificent performance in the biennial games as his mere presence in the arena drew mass crowds as he dazzled his way on the mat.
With the events over, Yulo ended his SEA Games haul with two gold medals and five silvers, easily making him one of the most decorated athletes in this edition of the regional Games.
Bronze went to Singapore's Xong Sean Sean Yeo, who got a score of 13.567.
2017 gold medalist Le Thanh Tung could not defend his throne after wounding up with only 12.233 after crashing during a difficult stunt in his routine.
