New Zealand Team and Sporting Events

While six athletes will compete in canoeing and four in cycling, the rowing will witness highest participation with 31 athletes. Ten New Zealanders will fight for the top place in sailing.

New Zealand, which has produced rowers like Mahe Drysdale - the current Olympic champion and the five-time World champion in the single sculls - is looking forward to win gold this year as well. The country will also bet on Ryan Taylor, who is one of the promising shooters and a potential medal winner. The 36-year-old Taylor will contest the men's 50-meter prone.

The athletes would look to better their performance in 2012 London Olympics where they had won 13 medals.
