Willis undecided on Olympic medal ceremony

6:17 am on 15 December 2010

The Olympic silver medallist Nick Willis says he'll talk to his family in Wellington before deciding what type of medal ceremony he wants.

The New Zealand Olympic committee is waiting to hear from Willis, having now received from the IOC the silver medal he was upgraded to in the wake Bahrain's Rashid Ramzi disqualification for drug use, after winning the 1500m at the Beijing Games.

Willis, who's currently training at altitude in New Mexico, will be back in New Zealand in February and says he'll decide in the next couple of weeks what format the ceremony will take.

He says it would be nice to be in front of an athletics crowd.
