Filipino gymnastics hotshot Carlos Yulo added yet another medal to his rapidly-growing collection after taking silver in the Men's Still Rings Final at the 2019 Southeast Asian Games Artistic Gymnastics competition, Tuesday evening at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila.
After taking gold in the Men's Floor Excercise Final and silver in the Men's Pommel Horse Final, Yulo - who was favored for another podium finish in his third event of the day - came out and delivered as he dazzled the Rizal Memorial Stadium crowd with his Still Rings routine, earning a 13.733 and making him an early frontrunner for gold.
Much like in the Pommel Horse Final however, Yulo was once again ousted from his spot at the top of the table, this time by Vietnam's Nam Dang, who put up an impressive 13.867.
Indonesia's Dwi Arifin also finished with a 13.733, but Yulo's execution score of 8.233 carried more weight and earned him the silver medal finish. Arifin's execution score was 7.733.
With silver medal number two, Yulo's personal 2019 SEA Games medal tally goes up to four, including a pair of golds.
