Filipino gymnast Carlos Yulo collected his sixth medal in the ongoing 2019 Southeast Asian Games after taking silver in the Artistic Gymnastics Men's Parallel Bars Final event, Wednesday evening at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum in Manila. 

Yulo wowed the crowd with his routine on the bars and it was good for a 14.600 on the judges' scorecards. 

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to overtake Vietnamese star Phuong Thanh Dinh, who topped the event with a 14.800. Phoung's compatriot Le Thanh Tung finished with 14.233 to take bronze. 

This was Yulo's fourth straight silver medal finish after opening his SEA Games campaign with a pair of gold medals. 

Currently, the 19-year old has had quite the debut in the biennial sporting event, with a gold in the Men's Individual All-Around and the Men's Floor Excercise Final events, an silver in the Pommel Horse Final, the Still Rings Final, the Vault Final, and the Parallel Bars Final.
