“I’m very happy. I really wanted to win that gold,” said Yulo. “I wasn’t expecting to win, but I just focused on my routine. I’m happy I got it.”

Returning to the Quan Ngua Sports Palace where he was crowned the all-around champion last Friday, Yulo, 22, topped the floor exercise, and won three more golds for (high bar, parallel bar and vault).
