Re: Ele Opeloge 

If Joseph Parker, a man, gets parades and people get half days off because he won a world title, I think Ele, a woman, should get the same honour and treatment for winning the first Olympic medal Samoa has ever won.

Ele was born and raised in Samoa whereas Joseph Parker was born and raised in NZ. 

Ele is the real Samoan sports hero. I guess the P.M. doesn’t think a woman will bring in enough foreign money to give her the honor she deserves. 

Shame on you Mr. P.M.
