PSC HEAD COMFORTS YULO AFTER FALTERING IN FLOOR EXERCISE IN TOKYO OLYMPICS
Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) Chairman chairman William "Butch" Ramirez has comforted Filipino gymnast Carlos Yulo.
Ramirez comforted Yulo, saying that mistakes in competitions happen.
“Si Caloy, first-time sa Olympics. I got to talk to him before his vault competition. Sabi ko sa kanya na ‘wag siya masyadong mag-worry kasi it really happens,” he said.
But he also stressed that reaching Olympic success doesn’t happen overnight.
“Naawa ako sa bata dahil he was pressured. Nakita ko na umupo siya sa ibaba. I would imagine as an athlete ‘yung frustration nu’ng bata, but Caloy should not worry because he has Paris Olympics to look forward to,” Ramirez shared.
Yulo failed to advance to the finals of his pet event, the floor exercise but he can still bag a medal from the Olympics as he qualified for the finals of the vault apparatus.
