Filipino pole vaulter EJ Obiena finished fourth in the ISTAF Berlin Continental Tour 2021 on Sunday after clearing 5.81 meters.
The event came just 24 hours after registering a new Asian record in the Golden Roof Challenge in Innsbruck, Austria which earned Obiena a gold medal.
The 25-year old set a new Asian record of 5.93 meters, shattering the 5.92 cleared by Igor Potapovich of Kazakhstan in 1992.
Sam Kendricks of the United States won the event via countback over fellow American Christopher Nilsen with 5.91 meters.
KC Lightfoot of USA settled for third with 5.81 meters and took the spot over Obiena also via countback.
Obiena cleared 5.41 and 5.56 bar in just the first tries, and 5.71 on the second attempt, but he needed three to successfully finish 5.81 meters.
He was eliminated in the 5.91 mark.
