Valerie Adams is a daughter, mother, wife, and two-time Olympic gold medalist. Having grown up from humble beginnings in Auckland, NZ and forever proud of her Tongan heritage from her mother’s side, Adams has become one of New Zealand’s most celebrated athletes. DAME VALERIE ADAMS: MORE THAN GOLD, directed by Briar March, centers on Valerie’s perspective on her rise to fame, and her troubled childhood, traversed through racism and poverty.
