Pint sized Samoan archer Maureen Epati- Tuimalealifano might be small in stature but she is on fire for God.
Even before coming to London 2012, the 41 year old has been on the offensive spiritually praying and fasting for her performance.
Apart from bringing her bow and arrows- equipment for competition, she has come prepared spiritually with her Daily devotional and Bible.
It may come as a surprise that Samoa has sent a female archer to the London Olympics.
