MANILA, Philippines—A former Philippine Olympic Committee president proposed a motion for a General Assembly in hopes of fixing the rift between Olympian EJ Obiena and Philip Ella Juico, the embattled president of the Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association.

Monico Puentevella said in a statement that it’s high time for the parties involved in the dispute to set aside their personal egos and work together for a resolution in the dispute that has dragged on into the New Year.

“Time for sacrifice and set aside our egos to save Philippine sports from mediocrity,” said Puentevella Thursday. 

“Nobody wins in this ego tripping squabble. Philippine sports is the big loser and this has to stop.”
