MANILA, Philippines—Karl Eldrew Yulo has projected himself to someday become a better version of his elder brother, two-time world champion Carlos Edriel Yulo.

The younger Yulo began to pave the road to that dream on Monday, claiming his first podium performance in a major international tournament at the ongoing 2023 Asian Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Singapore.

Winding up fourth in the preliminary round, the 15-year-old from Leveriza, Manila made it count in the finals of the men’s junior vault and almost ruled the event with 13.775 points that forged a tie with China’s Wang Chengcheng.

The Chinese eventually seized the gold medal following a second-place output among 11 participants in the pre-final phase.

Yulo bagged the silver medal and Kazakhstan’s Altynkhan Temirbek placed third with 13.650 points.

Being groomed to follow the footsteps of his multi-awarded sibling, Yulo finished seventh in the floor exercise (12.000) and 15th in the individual all-around (73.900) featuring all six apparatuses behind rising Japanese stars Masaharu Tanida (79.900) and Rento Noda (79.800).

In women’s junior artistic gymnastics, their younger sister, 14-year-old Elaiza Andriel Yulo is running 34th in the first round of the individual all-around.
