Malo and welcome to Season 2 Episode 35 of Breakfast Bites by TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on this beautiful Thursday morning 04 August 2022 – coming to you from the 180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

We start with a bit of NFL news – a game in which Pasifika warriors thrive, the Dallas Cowboys is the most valuable sports team franchise in the world at US$7.6Billion placing them ahead of the New York Yankees by approximately US$630Million. In the NFL, the Cowboys are followed by the Rams, the Patriots and the Bengals fourth valued at US$2.8B.

In the NRL – former NSW Blues tough guy, Paul Gallen will end his boxing career in style by fighting two Queenslanders in one night in September and deep in Queensland country.

The rumour is, one of the fighters is former Queensland NRL and ORIGIN star, Justin Hodges with the other fighter to be confirmed.

Meanwhile in South Africa, under-fire All Blacks Captain, Sam Cane says he is all good to go ahead of their first of two Tests against the Springboks who no doubt will target him BIG time.

Yay go Ardie go!

To our Commonwealth Games 2022 Pasifika Peoples Wrap:

Samoa’s weightlifters took out two more silver medals overnight at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England.

Jack Opelonge finished second in the men’s 109kg class, while Feagaiga Stowers also picked up silver in the women’s 87Kg plus category.

Opelonge lifted 358kg, was denied gold when his clean and jerk lift of 200kg was overturned after judges found it to be a no-lift. He had to settle for a lift of 194kg instead, and silver.

Samoa finish the games with four weightlifting medals – one gold and three silver.

Either the Cook Islands or Niue will win a medal in boxing at the Commonwealth Games.

Heavyweights Duken Tutakitoa-Williams of Niue and Michael Schuster of the Cook Islands face each other and the winner is guaranteed at least a bronze medal.

History also for Eileen Cikamatana of Levuka and now Australia for her Gold medal in a new Commonwealth Games Record in the Womens 87Kg category.

What if Samoan men’s superstar weightlifter, Don Opelonge married Fijian-Australian female record-breaking weightlifter, Eileen Cikatamana – can you imagine how strong their children would be?
