Additional information

FIGHTING SPIRIT
"I've always been someone who roots for the underdog. I love competing for a smaller country, a developing nation. It's just a different feeling." (cm-life.com, 29 Mar 2018)


FAMILY MOVE
Father, Ross, emigrated from Samoa to the United States in 1973 when he was 19 years old. (cm-life.com, 29 Mar 2018)


SPORT CHANGE
Track and field was not part of his life until he was 16 years old, a junior at Ogemaw Heights High School. His primary sports were football and basketball. The chemistry teacher, who was also the track and field coach, proposed the idea of joining the team. (cm-life.com, 29 Mar 2018)
