This Ad Showing Carlos Yulo's Gymnastics Journey Is the Dose of Inspiration You Need Today
Even the world champion had to start somewhere.
(SPOT.ph) Nothing worth having comes easy. For athletes, clinching victory means hours upon hours of training and practice, plenty of pain, and a whole lot of persistence. While world champions like gymnast Carlos Yulo seem to nab one medal after the other with relative ease, they too had to start from square one and encounter hurdles along the way. This Milo ad featuring Yulo shows his gymnastics journey, and it will leave you feeling inspired.
As Yulo watches younger gymnasts in the ad, he is thrown back to his childhood, and it shows how he got interested in the sport and finally won his first gold, with support from his mom. You probably noticed the resemblance between Yulo and the child actor, and it's no coincidence. The younger gymnast is played by none other than his real younger brother Karl Eldrew Yulo, also known as Drew, who's also got a few flips and tricks up his sleeve.
The chocolate drink is known for featuring young Filipino athletes in their commercials and ads, like swimmer Mariella Infantado, rhythmic gymnast Nica Calapatan, football player Tim Polero, basketball player Micco Sollano, figure skater Katrice Delos Reyes, and taekwondo black-belter Japoy Lizardo.
