Adams and Walsh wins
WELLINGTON (NZL, Mar 29): Shot put highlights during second day of New Zealand Championships. First Valerie Adams got ther 13th national title with good 20.46 and three other 20+ attempts. It is also her 46th consecutive victory since 2010. Tom Walsh then confirmed his top shape with New Zealand All-comers record 20.79 and clear win over Jacko Gill who competed for first time since 223 days with 19.93. Stuart Farquhar got his 14th javelin title with 74.69. Solid women races Angela Smith in the 800 m 2:01.53 and Rosa Flanagan in steeple 9:57.47.

(Editor's note: Valerie Adams has now won 46 straight competitions. That is dominating. Adams is a consummate competitor, and possesses the speed and control like few of her competitors. She deserves much more respect. Fascinated to see how Tomas Walsh develops. )
