P1.5M reward awaits Obiena for new national, Asian pole vault records

MANILA, Philippines – A hefty incentive worth P1.5 million awaits Filipino Olympian pole vaulter EJ Obiena after he registered a new Asian and national record in the 17th Golden Roof Challenge in Innsbruck, Austria Sunday.

The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) decided in its recent board meeting to give the reward as soon as the Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association (PATAFA) gets confirmation from the World and Asian Athletics Federations that the 25-year-old Obiena broke the 23-year-old Asian mark.
