Double Olympic Champion and golden girl of New Zealand Track & Field, Valerie will be competing at her fourth Commonwealth Games having won gold at Delhi 2010 and Melbourne 2006 along with silver in Manchester 2002. Showing her great commitment to her country, Valerie made the journey home in March 2014 to take out her 13th National title in Wellington. Our shot put queen is the reigning Commonwealth, World, World Indoor, and Olympic Champion making her a strong gold medal prospect for Glasgow. Amazingly, since 2005 she has not finished outside the top 3 in any international competition.
