    First I would like to start by saying, “Go Palau ! ”

    Since I can’t play sports anymore, and knowing full well that our current President is one of the most accomplished Leader Palau’s sports history. I am very confident that our Island will not only succeed as a host, but in medals as well.

    It’s an apportunity to boost our economy and promote our island to the fullest. To all our leaders. “Don’t hold back and don’t let this slip by.” This will be the spring that will jump start the spirits and boost our morale in this sad economic time.
