Olympic disappointment for Wellington Phoenix duo

The pair will not be going to the games as the Oly-Whites' over-23 players, as the Olympics clash with the start of the A-league football season.

Smeltz accepts it was a difficult choice for the Phoenix to make. He says any athlete would want to go to one of the world's biggest sporting events but understands why they cannot play.
