“One of my goal…

Unsung Heroes: People Shining a Light in a Sometimes Dark World

One of Adams' goals is to inspire young people in NZ. Photo / NZ Herald

“One of my goals is to inspire young people in New Zealand (everywhere?). I’ve always said that if I can inspire just ONE person, I can die happy. If I can inspire one person to change their life and make it better for themselves, and that’s not necessarily in sport, I can tell you now that I will be happy to die and that my job is done.”

– the “rather humble” words of Olympic and Commonwealth Games gold medallist (in the shot-put) , Valerie Adams

Great sentiments and well expressed, Val!

“Together, one mind, one life at a time, let’s see how many people we can impact, encourage, empower, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and so become ‘ever more champions of life’.”
