MANILA, Philippines — Carlos Yulo is back in collecting gold medals like picking apples from a tree.

The two-time world champion made it a four-gold haul after reigning supreme in vault and parallel bars in the 11th Senior Men’s Artistic Gymnastics Asian Championships in Tashkent, Uzbekistan last night.

The 24-year-old wonder from Manila vaulted to an average score of 14.883 in his third golden effort following earlier triumphs in the individual all-around Friday and floor exercise the next day.

He topped an eight-man field that included eventual silver and bronze winners Abdulaziz Mirvaliev of host Uzbekistan, who had 14.783, and Muhammad Sharul Aimy of Malaysia (14.466). Another Filipino, Miguel Besana wound up fourth with a 14.150.

The Pinoy ace later snared the parallel bars mint with a 15.133, defeating silver winner Yin Dehang of China (15.033) and bronze medalist Rasuljon Abdurakhimov of Uzbekistan (14.866). He was vying in horizontal bar at press time.

Earlier, Yulo’s younger sibling, 16-year-old Karl Eldrew, emerged victorious in the junior division’s vault event with a score of 14.433, edging Kazakhstan’s Altynkhan Temirbek and Uzbekistan’s Sarvar Abulfaizov.
