I be­lieve Waisale Serevi, dur­ing his metic­u­lous play­ing days show­case his God given tal­ent as he an­nounced (Phil 4: 13) openly with­out fear to the world far and near “that I can do ev­ery­thing through him who gives me strength.”

In the sense that metaphor­i­cally af­ter re­ceiv­ing ver­bal as­sur­ance from Maraia Vula that I had been a re­cip­i­ent to the let­ter of the week F/S 13/08, I had a sleep­less night there­after be­fore the grand fi­nal at Olympic rugby 7s fi­nal at Deodoro Sta­dium in Brazil. Ap­par­ently I had been given a spe­cial recog­ni­tion as there was not a sin­gle time dur­ing my school days for me to ex­cel in aca­demics, even in English. It’s just a wild dream that I would reach this far.

In ret­ro­spect, my gift is also spe­cial in the sense that prior to the Olympic rugby 7s fi­nal at Deodoro Sta­dium had given me an urge that the vic­tory for the men’s 7s team would defini­tively come.
