Who is Valerie Adams and why she is a role model?

LEVEL: Intermediate

Valerie Adams is an internationally-known and successful New Zealand athlete. These sites will help you find all sorts of information about Valerie, including facts, pictures, quotes and what makes her famous.

Christchurch City Libraries has an excellent page on Valerie Adams. From this article we can see that Valerie has won medals at both Olympic and Commonwealth Games. On the New Zealand Olympics website there is a page on Valerie where you can find photos, more facts, news and results. She was also named World Athlete of the Year in 2014 by the International Association of Athletics Federations.

HOT TIP: Another place to look is Wikipedia which has great coverage of many topics, including Valerie Adams. But you need to be aware that this information is contributed by lots of different people. If you are using this site, it always pays to check the information against that on other sites.

But is Valerie Adams a role model? Lets find out what it means to be a role model by looking at another entry we have here on ManyAnswers. From this we can see that a role model is someone to be imitated or copied.

Valerie Adams has been named the New Zealand Post Ambassador. The link will take you to the article, which explains that she is a good role model not only because she is successful, but because of her behaviour on and off the sporting field. 

HOT TIP: You can find out more by using a search engine. We like DeeperWeb because the ‘tag cloud’ on the right suggests search words that will help ‘build’ a search. We can also use it to narrow our results to educational resources or to sites with .org or .govt in the website address. Try using keywords like "Valerie Adams" "role model", putting them in quotation marks so that DeeperWeb knows to look for the two words as a phrase.
