"Gold is what we're looking for," says NZ coach

Asked how the New Zealand cycling team will fare at the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, national high performance director Michael Flynn told stuff.co.nz: "We are not actually planning to win silver or bronze; we're going about our business to win gold, so if you want a prediction, that's what we're actually looking for."

Continued Flynn: "I believe with the strength of the athletes we've selected, and if we can bring them together as a team, we've got potential to be medallists - gold medallists - in all of our endurance events. The potential to win medals is as strong as it has ever been."
