Yulo soared his way to capture his fourth gold medal in this year’s regional biennial meet and pulled away for good with a score of 14.700.

Thailand’s Tikumporn Suritornta followed suit with silver with 14.250 while Yulo’s teammate, Juancho Miguel Besana, settled for bronze with 14.017.

The 22-year-old Yulo has now surpassed his 2019 SEA Games performance here in the Philippines, where he reigned supreme in the all-around and floor exercise and clinched silver medals in the pommel horse, still rings, vault, and parallel bars.

The country’s top gymnast sucessfully defended his all-around and floor exercise titles before dominating the still rings event.
