Carlos Yulo fell short of defending his title in vault after settling for the silver medal in the 51st FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Liverpool, England Sunday, Nov. 6.
The 22-year-old Yulo tallied 14.950 from his two vaults to finish behind Tokyo Olympics bronze medalist Artur Davtyan of Armenia, who clinched the gold medal with 15.050.
Ukraine’s Igor Radivilov bagged the bronze with 14.733.
Yulo’s silver medal finish, somehow, erased the stigma of his failed bid in the all-around final where he finished eighth and in the floor exercise where he landed seventh.
Yulo is still campaigning for the gold in the parallel bars as of posting time.
