Gymnast Carlos Yulo ruled the vault event final round to win a gold medal at the 50th FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships at the Kitakyushu General Gymnasium in Japan on Sunday, according to a report by Manila Times.

Yulo scored an average of 14.916 points after an exquisite performance, which saw him record 14.800 points for his first vault and 15.033 for his second.

Eager to bounce back after failing to defend his floor exercise title on Saturday, Yulo showed he's on a mission right away as he executed a near flawless three-twirl act in mid-air for his first vault.

The 21-year-old, who placed third in the vault's qualification phase with 14.808 points, then bolstered his chances of winning the event with an impeccable Dragulescu in the second vault where he launched himself high for multiple body rolls on the way down.

Japanese Hidenobu Yonukera claimed the silver medal with an average of 14.866 points, while Israeli Andrey Medvedev captured the bronze with 14.649.

Italian Thomas Grasso placed fourth with 14.549 points, as South Korean Yang Hakseon landed at fifth place with 14.399.

British Courtney Tulloch ranked sixth with 14.383 points, while Ukrainian Nazar Chepurnyi took the seventh spot with 14.149, and Canadian William Emard placed last with 13.199 points.

Yulo has now won two gold medals in the World Championships — the first one being the floor exercise event in 2019 which keyed his Tokyo Olympic qualification.

Two hours after getting the gold, Yulo won a silver medal in the parallel bars at the same event.

Yulo, who topped the qualification phase of parallel bars with 15.566 points, scored 15.300 points this time around to finish as runner-up to champion Chinese Hu Xuwei who tallied 15.466 points.

Chinese Shi Cong took home the bronze medal with a score of 15.066 points.
