VAULTER VAULTER

Before each leap of faith, Tokyo 2020-bound EJ Obiena is calm under pressure

The pole vaulter became the first Filipino to win a berth to next year’s summer games by meeting the Olympic standard in Chiara, Italy. Throughout his young career, the Vitaly Petrov-trained athlete has had to make similar big, life-changing jumps.

The Ukranian world record holder was then in the country to meet former Philippine Amateur Track and Field Association (PATAFA) president Go Teng Kok.
