New Zealand will send a team of 12 weightlifters to the Commonwealth Games next month, including two past silver medallists.
Auckland's Richard Patterson (85kg) and Stanislav Chalaev (105kg) both won silvers at the Delhi Games four years ago.
Patterson, a two-time Olympic representative and ranked No 1 in the Commonwealth, is keen to go one better this time.
"I had my heart set on the gold in 2010 and I didn't know if I'd ever had an opportunity to go for it again," he said. "Glasgow is a chance for me to stand at the very top of the dais."
