Bilingual sports show, TE AO TOA, crosses live to congratulate one of its own presenters - Olympic gold medalist Stacey Fluhler from the Black Ferns Sevens team - screening on Māori Television tonight (Sunday 8 August 2021) at 5.00 PM.

New Zealand claimed their first ever gold medal in Olympic Rugby Sevens with a 26-12 victory over France in the final of the women’s competition at Tokyo Stadium last weekend.

The 25-year-old from Rūātoki - currently in MIQ in Christchurch - has emerged as one of the biggest stars in the Kiwi women’s game and played an important role in the Olympic final, scoring in the final minute of the first half to give the Kiwis a 19-5 lead at the break.
