The New Zealand track team's bad luck continued in advance of the upcoming World Cup track meet this weekend in Moscow. This time, the team suffered a bout of food poisoning.
Coach Terry Gyde told Auckland's NewstalkZB that the food in Moscow has been "horrible" and doubted that any carnivore would touch some of the meat the team saw. Fortunately, the team was slated to begin receiving its meals from a new source for the duration of their stay.
Upon its arrival in Moscow, the team had discovered the loss of important pieces of luggage, some of which never left the airport back home.
