Filipino pole vaulter EJ Obiena is finally inching towards the biggest stage in sports.
The country’s first Tokyo 2020 Olympics qualifier waited close to two years before reaching this point where he will finally make a debut in the quadrennial meet.
After going through a series of hardships in his young career, Obiena is now one of the world’s best pole vaulters, as he regularly competes against the likes of Armand Duplantis and defending Olympic gold medalist Thiago Braz.
