The Pinoy gymnast took to Twitter to offer his win to all Filipinos after his event.
“Para sa lahat po ng kapwa ko pilipino Mabuhay po tayong lahat at patuloy po natin suportahan ang mga atletang pilipino. Mabuhay Tayong lahat,” he wrote.
Carlos Yulo is the first-ever Filipino gymnast to notch a gold medal in a world gymnastics event in October.
His gold medal finish in the world championships qualified him to represent the Philippines in the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
