Silver medal finish for Samoa men’s relay

The Samoa Men’s Relay team ended the athletics event Friday evening with a silver medal.

Jeremy Dodson who finished the race for Team Samoa said they tried their best on the track.

"Our whole team gave it our all in this race. For me, I'm a relay runner and today I didn’t show it. My best attribute is my type of speed but for my Samoan brothers who did the relay race with me, we have a lot of time to prepare for future races."

For young Kelvin Masoe, he said he was thankful for all the support shown by the crowd today.

"Not getting the gold medal for Samoa isn't something to be down about because for me as a young athlete this isn't the ending this is just the start.

"This medal is for my parents cheering all the way in the big island, my families and my country Samoa, we made it to the very end because of the prayers and blessings on us."

Team Samoa was Jeremy Dodson, Kelvin Masoe, Shupeng Ah Vui and Kolone Alefosio.

Fiji won gold and the bronze medal went to Papua New Guinea
