Educational Student Exchange Program with Tokai University

The National University of Samoa (NUS) has made a donation to the Ele Opeloge Fund through the Samoa Observer.

This is to honour Samoa's weightlifting champion, Ms Ele Opeloge, whom after eight years of waiting, had finally been awarded with a silver medal from the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Opeloge met the N.U.S Deputy Vice Chancellor in Academic and Research, Peseta Desmond Lee Hang, alongside her Coach Tuaupepe Jerry Wallwork where the funds were exchanged and thanks were given.

The NUS Deputy Vice Chancellor said that Opeloge was once an NUS student and has become a joy to the university and that’s why they have donated their assistance to appreciate the fact that she won the 2008 Olympic Silver Medal for Weight lighting.

Ele thanked NUS for the gift.

“If it wasn't for my country and all the people that support me, I wouldn't have made it to that position and have won that medal,” she said.

The Olympian placed 4th at the 2008 Olympics 75kg + Weightlifting category until it was discovered that the weightlifters at 2nd and 3rd place were using performance enhancing drugs. Opeloge is now being honored for placing second during the 2008 Olympics.

The Ele Opeloge Fund is operated by the Samoa Observer to honor her, as the Government policy does not award monetary rewards to any medals below a gold medal.
