When interviewed, ONOC President, Dr. Robin Mitchell said, "Iliesa's gold winning performance is a proud moment for sport in the region and sport for development programs out of ONOC. Despite the limited resources available to member countries, he was able to overcome all odds through drive, hard work and commitment. We trust that sportswomen and sportsmen in Oceania will draw inspiration from Iliesa's story and continue their pursuit for excellence.

In an earlier interview with Iliesa in his capacity as a STOP HIV Champion, he was hopeful that his story as an athlete would inspire other young people to do the best they can in life and make responsible choices - including choices regarding their sexual health. With his recent achievement, STOP HIV is confident that this soft-spoken sporting hero will continue to positively influence sexual behavioural changes across the community and amongst his peers.
