MANILA, Philippines — Filipino pole vaulter EJ Obiena might have failed to bag an Olympic medal yesterday, but his determination and his mismatched Spongebob Suarepants socks captured the hearts of Filipinos. 

EJ Obiena missed out on a medal in his first appearance at the Olympics. This was after he registered just a best clearance of 5.70m in the final at the Olympic stadium. He finished at joint 11th with Germany's Bo Kanda Lita Baehre.

Below are social media users' reactions on Obiena’s mismatched socks.
