NZ on track for double-figure medal haul

New Zealand's high-performance sports agency says the country's athletes are on track for a double-figure medal haul at the London Olympics as the fruits begin to show from $180 million ($135 million) of public funding over the past four years.
High Performance Sport New Zealand said New Zealanders achieved 21 podium finishes in Olympic sports in 2011, indicating a prominent showing in London. New Zealand's best-ever Olympic medal haul came in Seoul in 1988 when it won 13 medals.
The agency said Friday..."when it's all added together New Zealanders have every reason to be hopeful of a successful London Games."
