The inspirational journey of two-time Olympic gold medalist, Dame Valerie Adams, from her humble beginnings in South Auckland to the pinnacle of sporting success. One of New Zealand’s most celebrated athletes, 2021 saw Dame Valerie medal at her fifth Olympic games. Her final throw in Tokyo was the culmination of an odyssey that started with a troubled childhood, traversed racism and poverty, to the world stage where she stands proud; a legend in two nations, a role model, a mother, a wife, an outspoken advocate for women in sport and a Kiwi icon.
