    Olympics year has dawned and Tom Walsh is aware of what will be on the line


    The kiwi shotputter will chase gold in Tokyo, after a bronze medal finish in Rio.

    Since then, he won the outdoor world championship in 2017 as well as Commonwealth Games gold a year later.

    He says he has a busy schedule, with some New Zealand events to start before the indoor world title defence and then onto the Diamond League.
