Gold For Boise State Swimmer Lauren Sale at Pacific Games
Boise State swimmer Lauren Sale (pronounced Saul-lay) has become the first female Samoan swimmer to win a gold medal in a major competition.
Sale won the 200 meter backstroke at the Pacific Games in Apia, Samoa where 24 Pacific nations are competing.
The Bronco junior recorded a personal best time in the preliminaries and then won the final race in 2:20:84.
Sale will compete in several other events such as the 50-meter backstroke and the 100-meter butterfly both set for late Wednesday.
All the swimming events are being held at the Samoa Aquatic Center in Apia.
