Valerie Adam's Gets a Silver Medal

Valerie Adams, New Zealand’s shot put champion, was unable to hold back her tears as she was being interviewed. Following her final throw, she had the realisation,that her wishes of becoming the World Shot Put Champion for the second time,were now ruined. A woman named Nadzeya Ostapchuk of Belarus had taken Valerie’s place, beating her personal best of 21.34metres. This was a very emotional evening for her. Valerie had worked tirelessly and despite her disappointment, she was proud of her achievements even though she got silver.

  1. Hi Vivienne,
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading your paragraph about Valerie Adams. I was extremely proud of her efforts but it's even better now that she has in fact, won gold! Sadly, her family didn't get to see her on the right place of the podium and there has been lots of attention in the media about what New Zealand can do to celebrate her win. What do you think we (as a country) should do for Valerie Adams when she comes back next month?
