KARL Eldrew Yulo from the National Capital Region achieved a remarkable feat by securing six gold medals in the secondary boys’ artistic events at the Palarong Pambansa, held at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum on August 4.
Yulo, the 15-year-old younger sibling of two-time world champion gymnast Carlos Edriel Yulo, showcased his prowess across various disciplines.
In the floor exercise, Yulo dominated with a score of 13.500 points. He also excelled in the vault with a total of 13.95 points, while achieving 9.00 points in horizontal bars and 9.250 points in the mushroom event.
Not only did Yulo clinch the gold in the individual all-around category with a score of 46.25 points, but he also played a pivotal role in leading NCR to victory in the team all-around event with a total of 41.7 points, as seen last Wednesday.
Standing at 4 feet 11 inches, Yulo expressed his elation at sweeping all the events for secondary boys in the Palaro gymnastics. He reminisced about achieving a similar feat in the elementary division back in 2017.
“I can’t put into words how joyous I am right now. Despite my confidence in my routines, I felt a bit nervous because this is a national-level competition,” Yulo said.
