Carlos Edriel Yulo of the Philippines won the men’s artistic gymnastics individual all-around title on Sunday in the 30th Southeast Asian Games at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

Yulo, 19, accumulated 84.900 points in six routines to beat Vietnamese bets Dinh Phuong Thanh and Le Thanh Tung, who scored 82.350 and 81.700 points, respectively.

The all-around gold is one of seven in men’s artistic gymnastics the Philippines is hoping to sweep through Yulo, the reigning world champion in floor exercise.

Yulo admitted there was pressure to perform in front of the home fans after his victory in the 48th Artistic Gymnastics World Championship in Stuttgart, Germany.

“It’s very different. I’m pressure because I know I have a chance to win a medal. I prefer competing without a chance of a medal. There, I can really give my best,” Yulo said in Filipino.

Yulo expectedly topped the floor exercise with 14.650 points, placed third in pommel horse with 13.600, finished second in the rings with 13.600, second in the vault with 13.600, and capped his performance with a first-place finish in the horizontal bar with 13.750 points.PR
