Obiena’s camp hits ‘reckless, irresponsible’ doping accusation

MANILA — The mentor of EJ Obiena slammed the doping accusation against the pole vaulting star, calling it “reckless” and “irresponsible.”

In an interview on CNN Philippines’ “Sports Desk” which aired Monday, October 16, James Michael Lafferty, an advisor of Obiena, attested to the athlete’s good character.


In a shared Facebook post by Vaulter Magazine – Vaulter Club Inc., a profile named Anais Lavillenie, wife of former world record-holder and 2012 Olympics gold medalist Renaud Lavillenie, commented that Obiena “doped” his way up in pole vault rankings.
