Lilo aku nei kahi puʻu kālā i kekahi kumu kula o Hawaiʻi no ka mālama ʻana i ʻOlimepika hoʻokani.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 12 o Kēkēmapa, he Pōʻakolu. Welina e nā makamaka. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

I ke kakahiaka o nehinei, ua kī ʻia aku nei kekahi wahine i ka pū e ka mākaʻi a make ihola ma ka mokupuni ʻo Hawaiʻi. ʻO Tori M. Kaneshiro ka inoa o ua wahine lā. Ua kū kona kaʻa ma ke Alanui ʻo Kahakai o Hawaiian Beaches ma Pāhoa a e ʻiʻimo ana ke kukui pōʻino a manaʻo ihola nā mākaʻi e nānā i ka maikaʻi a me ka maikaʻi ʻole paha o ka mea kalaiwa. I ke kamaʻilio ʻana aku o ka mākaʻi iā Kaneshiro, hoʻomaopopo ihola ʻo ia, he palapala hopu i hoʻolaha ʻia no Kaneshiro. A haʻi akula ka mākaʻi, e hopu ʻia ana ʻo ia ma muli o ka palapala hopu. Wahi a ka mākaʻi, hōʻole ihola ʻo ia i ka lele ʻana i lalo o ke kaʻa. I ia manawa, lele aʻela ʻo ia i ka noho o hope a ua ʻōlelo ʻia, lālau ihola ʻo Kaneshiro i ka pū laipela, kauoha akula nā mākaʻi e kau ka pū i lalo, ʻaʻole naʻe ʻo ia i hana pēlā. Wahi a ka Mēkia Sam Thomas, ua kau ka pū laipela a ka wahine i nā mākaʻi ʻelua a i ia manawa i kī aku ai kekahi iā Kaneshiro. Hoʻāʻo ihola nā mākaʻi e hoʻōla hou iā ia akā, i ka hiki ʻana aku i ka Haukapila o Hilo, ua lele ʻē ka hanu. ʻO ka lua kēia o ka manawa i kī ʻia ai kekahi kanaka i ka pū e ka mākaʻi a make i loko o nā pule ʻelua.

Lilo aku nei he $100,000 i kekahi mau kumu aʻo ʻelima o ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa ma ka Hoʻokūkū Moemoeā Nui. Na ka hui ʻo ʻInikua Mahiʻai ka hoʻokūkū. A ʻo Zachary Morita o ke Kula Waena o ke Awāwa ʻo Niu kekahi o ia mau kumu i lanakila. ʻO ka pahuhopu o ka hoʻokūkū, ʻo ia ka hōʻike ʻana a ke kumu i kahi moemoeā ma ke aʻo ʻana i nā keiki. ʻO ka manaʻo o Morita, ʻo ia ka mālama ʻana i ʻOlimepika hoʻokani no nā haumāna o kēia pae ʻāina nei. A ʻoiai, ua nele kekahi mau kula i nā pila, nā pū a me nā mea hoʻokani like ʻole, e kūʻai ʻia ana ia mau mea no ia mau kula.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Pulelo ke ahi haʻaheo i nā pali.

He ʻōlelo kēia no ka lanakila ʻana.
