Filipino gymnast Carlos Yulo bagged the gold medal in the floor exercise of the 55th All-Japan Seniors Championships on Friday (Manila time).
The 22-year-old Yulo also won a bronze medal in the vault event.
According to his longtime coach Munehiro Kugimiya, Yulo was forced to skip other events due to a finger injury.
Yulo is set to compete in the World Championship slated from October 29 to November 6 in Liverpool, England.
He is hoping to duplicate or eclipse his record in last year’s World Championship where he got a gold mint in the vault finals and a silver plum in the parallel bars.
