Valerie Adams Falls Short Of Gold!

Mixed feelings showed on Valerie Adams face as she won a silver medal at the 2012 London olympic games. Sadly she was not able to win back the gold medal from the previous 2008 beijing games. Adams was visibly upset as she threw not one, not two but three illegal throws. The gold medalist, Nadzeya Ostapchuk of Belarus threw an amazing throw of 21.36m. Valerie has never thrown this far! There is still hope for the 2016 Rio De Janeiro games.
