Training with one of your best mates is great. When that friend happens to the absolute best in the world at what she does...it's really another level. I've been really lucky to be able to train with shot put legend and all-round champion Val Adams while her coach Jean Piere Eager is in New Zealand. Val optimises a train to win gold medal attitude. She is an inspiration as a friend and it's awesome for JP to be in Auckland for the next couple of months. We had a another great session yesterday and I'm looking forward to training with the Adams/Eager/McGuigan team next week. Merci beaucoup ma soeur!
Yesterday in conjunction with Fairfax via stuff.co.nz Val's video blog went live. It's an awesome project so make sure you check it out as she will be doing weekly updates from all over the world on her "Road to Vicotry". No doubt it will give you a great insight, have you in stitches and leave your jaw dropping as you see what it takes to be the best. Check it out below... A bientot mes aimes
