    New Zealand women's sevens skipper Sarah Hirini says there was no way she wasn't going to give her all to get to this year's Olympics

    New Zealand women's sevens skipper Sarah Hirini says there was no way she wasn't going to give her all to get to this year's Olympics


    The 31-year-old's been named in the squad aiming to defend their title in Paris - just six months removed from suffering a serious knee injury at the Dubai leg of the World Series.

    Hirini says - after everything she's battled through - earning selection for her third Games is special.



    Meanwhile - some familiar faces have missed out on the 12-strong men's squad.

    Veteran trio Sione Molia , Joe Webber and Tim Mikkelson have only made the cut as travelling reserves.
