The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) and Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association (Patafa) are working together to complete the reinstatement of world-ranked pole vaulter Ernest John Obiena in the national team.
PSC officer in charge, Atty. Guillermo Iroy, Jr. said that he has already instructed the concerned offices of the agency to act on the matter with dispatch.
“I see no problem with the endorsement, EJ deserves to be back in the team," he said.
The agency is checking policies and records like the NSA quota or team ceiling and will be doing the necessary paperwork. If a slot needs to be added, Iroy explained that it will need board action, but the effectivity can be set retroactively to the submission of the endorsement.
