EJ Obiena is now best Asian pole vaulter in the world

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

EJ Obiena makes a successful 5.93m jump to shatter the more than 2 decades old 5.92m Asian record set by Kazakhstan's Igor Potapovich. 

Obiena bags GOLD in The 2021 Golden Roof Challenge in Austria

Two days ago, news outlets reported that EJ Obiena failed to garner a podium finish, and didn't top his personal best in the Diamond League

Today, he just broke the Asian pole vault record that has been held for more than 20 years, and even got the gold in this competition.

What a journey after Tokyo’s 11th place finish:

Obiena breaks national record w/ 5.91m at Paris Diamond League & won silver behind world#1 Duplantis.

Finished 4th, but is first Filipino to make it to Diamond League Final.

Now, he sets new Asian record.

Lesson: Keep going.

EJ Obiena is definitely my spirit animal. Yung tipong magkaka short breakdown muna for not reaching my goal but then babangon ulit to show everyone that I can learn from it and get better. Giving up is not in my vocabulary because I know na it's not the end of the road for me.

A big salute to him, and to all of our Filipino athletes, who inspire us and remind us that though life has its challenges, what's important is that you get up, learn, and keep on going. 

May God continue to guide and strengthen them in their endeavors.
