Synopsis

Olympian, World and Commonwealth champion. Valerie Adams talks openly and honestly about life in the spotlight and her tumultuous private life. Valerie Adams keeps no secrets as she tells her inspirational story of how a Tongan kid from Mangere, throwing the shot in bare feet, transformed herself into a double Olympic champion. She tells, in minute-by-minute detail, what really happened at the London Olympics. You’ll learn the full, true story of her split with coach Kirsten Hellier. She also reveals why the pain in her personal life made 2010 a nightmare for her. And why, to stay the best in the world, she’s been living on a mountaintop in Switzerland. Sir Murray Halberg says Valerie Adams may be on track to be our greatest ever athlete. Valerie — honest, joyous and sometimes heartbreaking — is the unvarnished story of a great athlete and a remarkable New Zealander.
