Carlos Yulo's Medal Tour continues.
The Filipino gymnastics phenom secured his first silver medal in the Men's Pommel Horse Final in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games Artistic Gymnastics competition, Tuesday evening at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila.
Just moments after recieving his gold medal for the Men's Floor Excercise Final event - his second in this year's SEA Games - Yulo went right back out into the competition area and rode the Pommel Horse as the fans cheered him on.
Yulo went on to score a 12.233 and for a while, appeared to be on his way to his second gold medal in a matter of hours. That was until Malaysian Fu Jie Tan bumped Yulo off from the top spot with his 13.967 run.
Still, it has been quite the SEA Games for Yulo, who's already collected three medals so far.
Vietnam's Phuong Thanh Dinh took bronze with 12.867.
The other Pinoy in the event, Jan Gwynn Timbang, finished 8th with 10.700.
