    Feb 21, 2016

    ERIC Cray started 2016 by taking the bronze medal in the 60-meter run of the 2016 Asian Indoor Athletics Championship in Doha, Qatar.

    The 27-year-old Cray, so far the lone official Filipino who has qualified for this year’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, clocked 6.70 seconds in the final to finish third place behind gold medalist Hassan Taftian of Iran (6.56) and compatriot Reza Ghasemi (6.66).

    The Fil-American sprinter set a Games record when he clocked 6.57 seconds in the semifinal round before Taftian broke it in the finals.

    Meanwhile, pole vaulter EJ Obiena is also seeking a berth in the Olympic Games through Doha meet.

    Obiena, who recently saw action in the UAAP for University of Santo Tomas, is looking to surpass the Olympic standard of 5.70 meters to qualify for Rio.
