Megan’s road to Gold Coast has come to an end…
The NZOC have confirmed that only 12 athletes will be competing in Weightlifting for New Zealand at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
Unfortunately, Megan Signal was unable to meet her conditional selection criteria due to her recovery from knee reconstruction.
Olympic Weightlifting NZ is extremely proud of Megan and her determination throughout this process. She is an extremely talented athlete and demonstrated tremendous courage on her journey back from such a major injury. We believe wholeheartedly that Megan will make a significant impact on the international stage and we look forward to welcoming her into our next New Zealand Team!
