WATCH: Carlos Yulo vaults to world gymnastics star status

Here are some fast facts about Carlos Yulo as he continues his ascent as a world-class gymnast

Filipino Carlos Yulo has stamped his class as a bona fide gymnastics star after impressing in the 2021 Artistic Gymnastics World Championships.

Determined to redeem himself from a disappointing run in the Tokyo Olympics, the 21-year-old bagged the gold in vault and silver in parallel bars as he raised his world championship medal tally to four.

It was his best showing in the worlds after Yulo pocketed a bronze in floor exercise in 2018 and a gold in the same event in 2019.

But the more impressive thing? Yulo is just getting started.

The Philippines’ prized gymnast is expected to make bigger waves in the international scene as he continues to improve, with the 2024 Paris Olympics in his sights. – Delfin Dioquino/
