It was just another day in the office for Carlos Yulo as he won the gold medal in the 15th FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Cup's Men's Floor Event in Doha, Qatar, Friday evening Manila time.

Yulo put up 14.833 to get the top spot in the event, and his act got a 6.5 rating for its difficulty, and 8.333 in execution. Yulo had a second-place finish last Wednesday, March 1, during the event's qualifications stage.

He overtook Japan's Kazuki Minami who scored 14.200, and Great Britain's Luke Whitehouse who delivered 13.966.

The multiple-time gold medalist is also set to participate in the vault and parallel bars finals this weekend, also in Doha.
