Athletes 'have all they need' in NZ - Lorraine Moller

Former Olympic marathon medallist Lorraine Moller refuses to "believe this rubbish" that New Zealand sport needs more funding.

The newly inducted member of New Zealand Sport's Hall of Fame gets a little toey when she hears excuses of that ilk.

She has heard it all, including the complaint that "everyone else is on drugs and that somehow we are at a disadvantage".

"If I had bought into any of that, I would never have got what I got. People were saying the same thing 15 years ago."

Moller insists New Zealand athletics - and sport in general - has "everything we need".
