The experience alone was just such a buz, Thank the lord for helping me along this journey and also my family at home in New Zealand and Samoa. Was a privilage to meet athletes and be surrounded with really positive and encouraging individuals all working hard towards their goal of gaining a medal at he Olympics. Congratulations to my training mates back in New Zealand, Steven Furgusson and Ben Foughy for making the finals in thier Kayak Sprint Mens 200m and 1000m.
