'Understanding of sailing' key to better representation for Samoans

From , 6:00 am on 10 July 2024

Eroni Leilua is Samoa's solitary sailing representative at the Paris Olympics this month.

Having grown up in Samoa and fallen in love with sailing at the age of eight he remembers there weren't many other Samoans involved in the sport.
Paris will be Eroni's second time representing Samoa at the Olympics and he wants to create more pathways for the next generation of Samoan sailors.

RNZ Pacific's Grace Fiaavai spoke with Eroni Leilua.
