Olympic Games postponed

International Olympic Committee President, Thomas Bach, and Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, announced the postponement of this year’s Games to be “rescheduled to a date beyond 2020 but not later than (northern hemisphere) summer 2021”.

The decision was made in the best interest of the athletes and the public in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Samoa's Anne Cairns secures spot in Tokyo Olympics

Cairns placed fourth in the women's heat, but was the first Pacific nation to cross the line which was all she needed to book her place.

Cairns' coach, Gavin Elmiger, who watched the results live from Auckland said he was ecstatic with Cairns results.

"She didn't realise initially until they said 'hey look you've qualified' and she was like 'what?' She couldn't believe it, so now there's a possibility that one of the Cook Island girls may qualify for the games as well, so it's exciting."
