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".
