The International Gymnastics Federation said, “The highest-ranked eligible athlete on each apparatus, based first on the apparatus finals results, and then, if needed, on the apparatus qualifications results, will obtain one quota place by name.”
Earning 14.600 points, the young gymnast grabbed the third spot during the competition. Israel’s Artem Dolgopyat finished first. Meanwhile, the United States’ Fred Richard grabbed the second spot.
Carlos Yulo will advance to the eight-man final on October 7, 2023. Furthermore, Yulo finished 11th during the parallel bars with 14.666 points.
