If you haven't had a big enough dose of sport this month with the All Blacks vs England, and the Fifa World Cup, you surely will have in a few weeks. Yes, the countdown is on to the Commonwealth Games. New Zealand has more than 230 athletes heading to Glasgow and there are high hopes for a swag of gold medals.
This week, we have a beautiful series of images by Herald photographer Greg Bowker, who spent time with six of our athletes-including Silver Fern Cathrine Latu and parasport swimmer Sophie Pascoe during their training in the lead-up to the games. Writer Suzanne McFadden found out what motivates them, and their passions outside of sport.
