Carlos Yulo bags floor exercise gold in All-Japan Senior Championships

Carlos Yulo continued to assert his mastery in his pet event as he bagged the gold medal in the floor exercise of the 55th All-Japan Seniors Championships on Thursday.

The Filipino gymnast also copped a bronze medal in the vault event to boost his preparation for the World Championship slated from October 29 to November 6 in Liverpool, England.

According to Yulo's longtime coach Munehiro Kugimiya, the 22-year-old ace was not able to join other events due to a finger injury.

Yulo is hoping to duplicate or eclipse his success in last year's World Championship, where he snared a gold mint in the vault finals and a silver plum in the parallel bars.

In the same competition, he was unable to defend his gold in the floor exercise after finishing just fifth.
