She said Niue's chef de mission, the person in charge of the team, was very pleased with the medal result.
“We've worked hard on our merits to get here. And we're thankful for all the support from everyone. The medal has really boosted our spirits. It's just amazing.”
It was not the first medal for Rex-Blumsky as she also won silver in the women's triples at the Port Moresby 2015 XV Pacific Games.
And her husband, Mark Blumsky, was in the men's triples with Dalton Tagelagi and Norma Mitimeti who won bronze on Wednesday too.
Niue's other lawn bowls medal came on Tuesday in the men's pairs.
