This year is the Commonwealth Games in Scotland Glasgow and I have been looking at a particular athlete that is competing in the games. Her name is Valerie Adams she is a professional shot-put player. She has won many medals and has competed in many events including the Olympics and the Commonwealth Games and many more. In the year 2012 the London Olympics Valerie Adams won a silver medal she was disappointed that she did not win first place, little did she know she was going to be re awarded the gold medal ,because Nadzeya Ostapchuk failed two drug test and was disqualified. This year in the Commonwealth Games she won a gold medal for Nz and many more to come.
