Samoa truly has the spirit and the heart to hosting next month’s Pacific Games.
This was shown on how members of the public in Samoa decorated their streets with colorful materials and ran with pride behind the torch bearers as the torch relay continues around the country today.
Samoa will host about five thousand athletes, officials and visitors from 24 countries, who will compete in 27 different sporting competitions over 14 days.
With 11 more days to go before the start of the XVI Pacific Games next month,the torch relay continues its visit around the country today.
Not many people may get the chance to hold the baton, but those who did, the experience would live in them forever. Many Samoans prefers to just run alongside the entourage – to get close to this memorable experience.
Some of the schools wore the traditional clothing of the country they have adopted, with the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture, helping the students aware of the different languages and traditional wear of the competing nations.
