Carlos Yulo capped off his campaign in the third leg of the FIG World Cup with a gold medal in the men’s vault last Sunday in Baku, Azerbaijan.
The 23-year-old Olympian averaged 14.933 points for his second gold medal in the leg and improved from the bronze medal finish he got in the same apparatus back in Doha last week.
Great Britain’s Harry Hepworth settled for silver with 14.816 points while Shek Wai Hung of Hong Kong wound up in third place with 14.716 points.
The Tokyo Olympics veteran bounced back from his blunder in the rings final last Saturday after only getting a seventh-place finish.
This is Yulo’s third gold in the World Cup after bagging the same color in Doha in the second leg and his gold in the parallel bars in the third leg.
In the span of three World Cup legs, Yulo now has a 3-1-2 gold-silver-bronze medal tally.
The two-time world champion will have more than a month to prepare for the fourth and final leg of the World Cup which takes place in Cairo from 27 to 30 April.
