On Tuesday the 7th of August 2012 at 6 am, Valerie Adams competed in the Olympics to try and defend her title of the women’s shot-put. Unfortunately she got silver because another thrower from Belarus named Nadzeya Ostapchuk threw 21.36. That score was over Valerie’s personal best. In her interview you could tell that she was visibly upset about her results. She got a medal, but it wasn’t the colour she was hoping to get.
