We and the whole Filipino nation are very proud of the admirable performance that EJ Obiena has displayed in the Men’s Pole Vault Competition during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Your exemplification of the Filipino spirit and sportsmanship did not only bring historic success to our nation, but also greatly inspired us to lift each others’ spirits during these tough times.

Nakakahanga ang pinakita mong world-class talent. Hindi ka man pinalad mag-uwi ng medalya, panalo ka pa rin sa puso ng bawat Pilipino!

Mabuhay ka, EJ! We are all proud of you.
