New Zealand Olympic Team 

OK, well to be honest I'm actually doing this for me, so as I know who to follow, who our medal hopes are with and when they are competing. Reason being it's notoriously hard to keep track of these kinds of things come olympic time and also I'm out of the country so won't be able to see much, if any of our athletes nor have any warning of when they will be on.
