Injured lips can give your mouth a different feeling but Apisai Domolailai told his wife Kinisemere that its nothing compared to winning an Olympic gold medal, which is more precious.

Speaking to SUNsports yesterday Kinisemere said her husband told her this soon after their win in Rio.

And also she is contemplating of taking her husband somewhere in Australia to celebrate the win.

“It’s time for us to be together to catch up on the lost family time,” she said.

“Ever since the Road to Rio campaign my husband has been travelling to difference parts of the world to play in the World Sevens Series.”

Kinisemere said Apisai informed her that he injured his lips while playing against Japan in the medal semi-final.

“But he told me that it was all good as long as they win the gold. Apisai told me winners are not the people who never fail but people who never quit.

“He promised me a win and to bring the gold medal to add to his medals and trophies at home,” she said.

Kinisemere said she is grateful to God for giving the players the strength, power and the heart to go and play for their country.

“For them to win our first Olympic gold is only possible through God.

“Without dreams they reach nothing, without love they gain nothing but with God they have everything.
“I’m so happy for the win.”
