Pole jumping is one of the sports that require an athlete to have good physical strength and height, to get advantages in competing.

However, an unexpected thing happened during the decathlon competition in the 31st SEA Games on the morning of May 15 at My Dinh National Stadium, when Janry Ubas Borinaga, a Filipino athlete with a height of less than 1m70, conquered the highest bar at a height of 4m40, surpassing many other athletes who are higher than him.

After conquering the 4m40 bar, Janry Ubas Borinaga decided to raise the bar to 4m60. But he could not win at this level of height. Finishing in 2nd position is Thai athlete Suttisak Singkhon, with a bar height of 4m30./.
