With or without Carlos Yulo, the Gymnastics Association of the Philippines are tipped to come up with a strong campaign in the 32nd Southeast Asian Games.

During their final evaluation at the Gymnastics Hall of the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex yesterday, GAP president Cynthia Carrion said she likes their chances and braces for a solid performance not just from Yulo but other athletes as well.

Under the supervision of Yulo’s Japanese coach Munehiro Kugimiya, the six-man team of Yulo (parallel bars and horizontal bar), Juancho Miguel Besana (vault), Ivan Cruz (floor exercise), Ace de Leon (still rings), Jhon Santillan (pommel horse) and Jan Timbang (pommel horse) underwent a two-hour evaluation.

Apart from their respective apparatuses, all of them will be participating in the individual and team all-around events so it was very crucial for them to test themselves in other apparatuses.

“We’re training hard so that even without Caloy, we can win some more medals. Not only Caloy, Caloy, Caloy,” Carrion said.

“They like it. They’re so excited.”

The national team will be leaving for Phnom Penh on 4 May for the competition set from 6 to 9 May at the Olympic Stadium Centre, Marquee Tent.
