EJ Obiena PinoyAthletics Male athlete of the year 6th time.

EJ Obiena: PinoyAthletics Athlete of the Year

EJ Obiena’s meteoric rise in the pole vaulting arena has captivated the world, rightfully earning him the distinguished title of ‘PinoyAthletics Athlete of the Year’. Hailing from Tondo, Manila, this Tokyo Olympian exemplifies the essence of Filipino excellence on the global stage. His astounding achievements this year alone make a compelling case for this accolade. This is the 6th time Obiena has won the MVP accoldade after 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022.

At the 19th Asian Games, Obiena made history by securing the Philippines’ maiden gold in men’s pole vault, setting a new Asian Games record in the process. This incredible feat came after a resounding success at the World Championships, where he clinched a silver medal, asserting his dominance in the sport. The elite six-meter club globally now boasts of having him as its only Asian member.

But Obiena’s journey of accolades doesn’t end here. His Olympic qualification was a significant milestone, showcasing his readiness to compete at the highest level of the sport. Coupled with his gold medals at the SEA Games and the Asian Championships, EJ Obiena’s consistency, determination, and unparalleled skill make him a shining star in athletics and a deserving recipient of the ‘PinoyAthletics Athlete of the Year’ title.

EJ Obiena Secures Historic Gold in Men’s Pole Vault at 19th Asian Games

World No. 2 and celebrated pole vaulter, EJ Obiena, sealed a momentous season by clinching the Philippines’ first-ever gold medal at the 19th Asian Games held at the bustling Hangzhou Olympic Sports Centre Stadium on September 30th.

At 27, this Tokyo Olympian from Tondo, Manila, showcased an impeccable performance by surpassing the previous Asian Games record of 5.70 meters set by Japan’s Seito Yamamoto in the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games. He set a new milestone by clearing a height of 5.75 meters. Surpassing his own feat, Obiena then soared to 5.9 meters in a solitary attempt, drawing thunderous applause from an 80,000-strong crowd, including fervent Filipino fans and notable figures like the Philippine Olympic Committee president, Rep. Bambol Tolentino, and athletics chief Terry Capistrano.

Sharing his euphoria, Obiena took to Facebook stating, “Experiencing the synchronized applause of 80,000 attendees in the mesmerizing Hangzhou Stadium was unforgettable.” He expressed immense pride in delivering the Philippines’ first gold in this edition of the Asian Games and setting a new championship record. The season, he says, concludes “with a smile,” and extends gratitude to his team for their unwavering support through four major championships this year.

Obiena, who is not just a World Championship silver medalist but also the only Asian member of the global elite six-meter club, firmly established his dominance over competitors like Bokai Huang of China and Hussain Asim Al Hizam from Saudi Arabia. Both contenders achieved a tie with heights of 5.65 meters.

Post-event, Obiena stressed the impGortance of bringing glory back to his country and acknowledged the immense expectations, saying, “Pressure is a privilege.”

This victory is the first for the Philippines in Asian Games athletics since Lydia de Vega‘s win in women’s 100m in 1986.

In a tribute to his coach Vitaliy Petrov’s birthday, the pole vaulter audaciously aimed to surpass his own Asian record by targeting 6.02 meters. Despite the valiant effort, the height remained unconquered this time. He extended gratitude to coach Petrov and his team, acknowledging the remarkable journey from the SEA Games in May to this triumphant moment in September.

EJ Obiena wins Berlin ISTAF “Not bad! at all for a Tall Skinny Guy!”

Just three days after a forgetabble Diamond League Zurich leg performance, Filipino pole vaulting sensation, Ernest John “EJ” Obiena, showcased a remarkable comeback. He clinched the gold medal at the Istaf Berlin event held at the iconic Olympiastadion in Germany.

Achieving a height of 5.92 meters on his third try, Obiena reclaimed his spot on the podium, a position he missed out on in Zurich on September 1. This Zurich event marked the end of Obiena’s impressive streak of 11 consecutive podium finishes for the season.

Starting strong at the Istaf Berlin competition, Obiena effortlessly cleared 5.52 m. He then surpassed 5.72 m in two attempts and achieved 5.82 m in a single try. However, the 5.92-meter mark posed a challenge, which he overcame in his third and decisive attempt.

While competitors like Norway’s Sondre Guttormsen and USA’s KC Lightfoot couldn’t clear the same height, it was Obiena who emerged victorious, bagging the gold. Guttormsen secured silver with a 5.82 m jump, edging out Lightfoot based on fewer attempts. Both athletes had a best of 5.82 m, but Guttormsen achieved it in one go, while Lightfoot took two tries.

Eager to break his own record, the Paris Olympics-aspirant Obiena made an attempt at 6.01 meters but couldn’t surpass his personal best and Asian record of 6.0 meters.

Notably, the reigning World and Olympic champion, Armand Duplantis from Sweden, was absent from the Istaf Berlin event.

EJ Obiena takes Silver at the worlds

EJ Obiena, the Filipino Olympian pole vaulter, clinched a silver medal at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest this Saturday. Obiena’s remarkable achievement came after he cleared the six-meter mark in just two attempts, matching his personal best and the Asian record he initially set in June at the Bergen Jump Challenge in Norway.

While Obiena made valiant efforts to clear 6.05 and 6.10 meters, he was unable to complete these attempts. Nonetheless, his silver medal-winning performance at 6.00 meters has been a significant milestone in his career and a proud moment for the Philippines.

The competition was intense, with only four other vaulters from the 12-strong field clearing the 5.85-meter mark. Among them were France’s Thibaut Collet, Australia’s Kurtis Marschall, and American Christopher Nilsen. Obiena, along with Collet and Nilsen, also successfully cleared 5.90 meters, a height that gold medalist Armand Duplantis chose not to compete at.

As the bar was raised to the challenging 6.00-meter mark, Obiena soared over it on his second try, solidifying his place in the record books with an Asian record. The feat proved to be a hurdle too high for other competitors like Collet, Marschall, and Nilsen, who were unable to clear the height.

Obiena then aimed for 6.05 meters but failed in his first attempt. Opting for a more ambitious leap, he had the bar set at 6.10 meters. Although he couldn’t clear this height, his efforts were more than enough to secure the silver medal.

Sweden’s Armand Duplantis ultimately took the gold with a 6.10-meter vault, while the bronze was shared between Marschall and Nilsen, both clearing 5.95 meters. Despite the intense competition, Obiena’s silver medal performance stood out, marking a significant achievement for both him and his country.

EJ Obiena Breaks Own Asian Championship Record 

Ernest Obiena takes the second gold for the Philippines and leaps 5.91 m, setting a new Asian Championship Record. He broke his own Championship record of 5.71m with 5.80m then raised the bar to 5.91m then had failed attempts at 6.02m. The EJ gold comes as the second gold after Robyn Brown’s surprise gold in the 400 Hurdles. Which rounds out the last day of the five-day Asian Championships in Bangkok. EJ and Brown should be the shoo-ins for the World Championship selections.

Cambodia—Phnom Penh On a rainy Monday afternoon, May 8, EJ Obiena proved why he is the Asian pole vault champion.

Obiena won his third Southeast Asian Games gold medal in severe rain and high gusts, defeating an upgraded field in the event where he is virtually unbeatable in the area.

Despite a one-hour rain delay, Obiena cleared 5.65m, breaking his SEA Games record of 5.46m from last year in Vietnam.

It’s hard. “This is a different challenge,” he remarked.

Before rain halted play, Obiena cleared 5.20m and 5.40m.

The Asian record holder surpassed his SEA Games record by clearing 5.50m, then 5.55m, 5.60m, then 5.65m.

After his final vault, he yelled and bowed to a small but noisy Filipino crowd at the 75,000-seat Coliseum.

God-willing, this rain ceased when I jumped. I needed the crowd to do it. God planned everything. “I’m happy,” Obiena stated.

Kasinpob Chomchanad and Patsapong Amsamaring of Thailand won silver and bronze with jumps over 5.20m.

In his SEA Games debut, Elijah Cole failed to pass 4.90m after three attempts.

Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association president Terry Capistrano told RP2 that the world no. 3 pole vaulter would not join the Philippine team in the continental meet due to a logistics problem.
However, Capistrano said that Obiena is still mulling a last-minute decision on how he will proceed.
Obiena kickstarted his indoor season with silver and gold medal wins in Germany and France.
To avoid undue stress, PATAFA advised Filipino vaulters initially lined up with the team to reconsider their participation.
Others on the roster are SEA Games bronze medalist Hokett Delos Santos and former SEA Games champion Natalie Uy who initially begged off due to a knee injury.
Olympian sprinter Kristina Knott was the first to withdraw from the Asian Indoor Athletics Championships, reducing the team roster from 17 to 13 athletes.
