Weightlifter David Liti has had a long journey to his second Olympics. The 27-year-old will compete in the men's 102kg division in Paris as New Zealand's sole weightlifter at the Games. Liti is hoping to do better than his 5th place in Tokyo but believes he'll need to better his personal best of a 414kg total to be in the medals in August.
