First with four

Valerie Adams has won her fourth world shotput title, becoming the first woman to win four individual world athletics titles in the same event.

Adams, 28, charged to the lead with 20.41m at her first attempt in the shot put final at the world championships in Moscow on Monday night and was never headed.

Her best throw of the night was 20.88m in the third round. . .

Adams’ commanding victory on Monday made her the first female track and field athlete to win four individual world titles – and to make it even more impressive, she achieved the feat at four successive championships. . .

What strength, fitness, skill, determination and perseverance it must take to accomplish this.
