Carlos Yulo will finally be free of the weight he has been burdened with since failing to place on the podium at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo after a victorious stint in world champs.

“I feel all of this competition will be revenge, all of it,” Yulo said before competing in worlds.

Looking back, Yulo was not able to bag the gold medal in his forte of floor exercise due to an error of losing his balance that cost him .300 on his execution score.

Yet Yulo did not lie and bombed the world of gymnastics once again after bagging a gold and silver medal in the 50th FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Kitakyushu, Japan just last weekend.

“[He’s] fully redeemed because after the failure on the floor [exercise], I went to see Caloy and he said he was a little depressed and he said ‘Ma’am, don’t worry, don’t worry. Tomorrow I will fight. I will fight and I will give you that gold.’,” Gymnastics Association of the Philippines (GAP) president Cynthia Carrion.

“I was sure that he was [going to do it], Caloy when he really wants it, [he does it]. So he did it,” she added.
