Samoa Deputy Prime Minister bewildered by Games claim

11:02 am on 16 April 2007

Samoa's Deputy Prime Minister has reiterated his country is on track to host August's South Pacific games.

Misa Telefoni has responded to recent criticism about the state of facilities and readiness to host the games.

He says he's bewildered by comments made by Guam's National Olympic Academy President, Ricardo Blas.

Mr. Blas has said he's so concerned by the state of the facilities the Guam athletic contingent to compete will be halved.

Mr. Telefoni says Mr. Blas is very supportive of Samoa and the vote to decide the Games venue was held in Guam
