FILIPINO Filipino pole vault star EJ Obiena has made a triumphant comeback by clinching a gold medal in Berlin.
Just three days after his disappointing last-place finish in the Zurich leg of the Diamond League, the Pinoy pole vault sensation made a remarkable recovery, securing a gold medal at the Istaf Berlin held at the Olympiastadion in Germany on the early morning of Monday, September 4 (Manila time).
Obiena displayed his prowess by successfully clearing 5.92 meters in his third attempt, solidifying his spot atop the podium once again.
Sondre Guttormsen of Norway and KC Lightfoot of the United States settled for silver and bronze, respectively, as they both failed to hurdle 5.92m.
