Yulo captures all-around bronze in Moscow tilt

/ 02:17 AM December 23, 2016

Gymnast Carlos Edriel Yulo bagged the individual all-around bronze medal in the junior men’s division of the Voronin Cup in wintry Moscow, Russia.

According to the Facebook account of delegation head Bettina Pou, the 16-year-old Olympic prospect performed competitively in all six artistic events—floor, pommel horse, still rings, vault, parallel bars and high bars—to reach the medal podium.

Early this year, Yulo scooped five medals in the 2016 Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships in Washington, including golds in the floor and vault events.

“Winning a medal in the all-around is a big deal because it means you are competitive in all six events,” said Pou, secretary general of the Gymnastics Association of the Philippines.
