She said Niue's chef de mission, the person in charge of the team, was very pleased with the medal result.
“We've worked hard on our merits to get here. And we're thankful for all the support from everyone. The medal has really boosted our spirits. It's just amazing.”
It was not the first medal for Rex-Blumsky as she also won silver in the women's triples at the Port Moresby 2015 XV Pacific Games.

Niue's other lawn bowls medal came on Tuesday in the men's pairs.
