Sean Mischa Aranar and Ana Leonila took home 3 golds while Mary Joy Renigen and Mark Jayson Gayon won 2 gold medals.

    Carlos Yulo, a gold medalist at the artistic gymnastics world championships also won gold in his first competition of the games. He will have chances to win 5 more gold medals as the games continue.
