Yulo speaks to the media after MAG 4th subdivision qualifications
DOHA: Comments from Carlos Edriel Yulo of the Philippines after the fourth subdivision of men’s qualifications at Aspire Dome on Thursday.
On ranking fourth All-around after four of 10 subdivisions.
I wasn’t really expecting it. I feel happy but not satisfied. I think I can do a lot better.
On his performance on the first five apparatus.
My floor was not bad, but I can do a lot better than that. My pommel horse - I’m not good at pommel horse, so…My rings was missing a little power in handstands, and that’s not good. My vault was actually nice. On parallel bars, the dismount was kind of going backwards so I didn’t really control it.
On his fall from horizontal bar in the sixth rotation.
My practice before I came here today wasn’t very good. Maybe that’s why I made the mistake.
On training in Japan since April 2016.
It benefits me a lot. There is a lot of good gymnasts, and my coach is also Japanese, so it’s kind of the same programme as theirs.
On his goals.
First, I want to go to the Olympics. Second, I want to be a good gymnast. That’s all.
