PATAFA officially brings EJ Obiena back to national team pool


Olympian EJ Obiena has been formally reinstated to the national team after Philippine Athletic Track and Field Association (PATAFA) endorsed his re-inclusion along with five other athletes to the Philippine Sports Commission.

This development came after the majority of PATAFA Board members voted on it during their special board meeting held last Saturday.

This was bared by PATAFA Executive Vice President Willie Torres, as instructed by PATAFA President Terry Capistrano.

PSC Executive Director Atty. Guillermo Iroy Jr. said that this decision takes effect this month and that the changes fall within the existing team quota of athletics.

Current PSC Officer in charge, Commissioner Bong Coo is pleased with this turn of events saying that “we are thankful to the PATAFA leadership” for taking this step to solidify the strength of our national athletics team.
