EJ OBIENA THANKFUL OF HIS RETURN FOR PHILIPPINE NATIONAL TEAM

 The Philippines 23-year-old World No.3 pole vaulter EJ Obiena has been officially reinstated to the national team.



It was confirmed by the national track and field association after the positive result whom majority of the Patafa board members voted on Obiena's reinstatement for the national team.




It can be recalled that Obiena was dropped from the national team roster due to his rift with the Philippine Athletic Track and Field Association (PATAFA).


"I am very thankful to PATAFA leadership and PSC for reinstating me back to the national team," said Obiena on his social media post.



"Whilst I shall properly leave the past in the past; I believe the facts have spoken. The Commission on Audit has spoken. My fellow countrymen have spoken. And my team and I have proven our dedication with our performances on the world stage and a first-ever World Championships medal," he added.




"This was a long awaited and just decision; and one in the best interests of Philippine sport. It’s also a decision that is congruent with the values and principles of the Olympic Spirit. Now, I look forward as I work tirelessly to bring more glory to our beloved Philippines!"
