Valerie Adams!

Valerie Adams

Valerie Adams is a gold medal shotput athlete. She is the reigning women's Olympic champion and three-time World champion, two-time Commonwealth and World Indoor champion. She currently holds the New Zealand, Oceanian, Commonwealth and equal World Championship records with a personal best throw of 21.24 metres.

Valerie is one of seven athletes to win World Championships in the youth, junior and senior athletic events. She met Kirsten Hellier in 1998 and this proved to be a turning point in her life. The pair combined for the next 11½ years until their relationship broke up in 2010. In that time Hellier, a former javelin champion, was Adam's’ friend, mentor, adviser and coach.

Valerie was born in Rotorua New Zealand on the 6th of October 1984, to a Tongan mother and an English father (Sydney Adams). She showed potential at several sports, because not only was she exceptionally tall and strong, but she was nimble and athletic as well.
