Valerie Adams

Valerie Kasanita Adams (formerly known as Valerie Vili), (born 6 October 1984) is a shot putter from New Zealand.
  • Valerie attended her first Olympic Games in Athens in 2004, just a month. In the qualifying rounds Valerie finished in ninth place, missing the cut for the final. One of the finalists later failed a drugs test, which brought Valerie into eighth place. Valerie's mum who was Tongan died from cancer when Valerie was 16 years old.
Kirsten Hellier said that Valerie was the perfect natural athlete for shot put because she is a amazingly competitive temperament, also strong and sucessful and the mental ability to perform well.
