Val Adams named NZ flag bearer at commonwealth

New Zealand double Olympic champion Valerie Adams will be the flag-bearer for the country during the opening ceremony of 2014 Commonwealth Games, scheduled to take place at the Celtic Park tomorrow.

"I'm just going to try and enjoy the moment as much as possible," she said. "But one thing's for sure – I worked out yesterday, I'm going to work out tomorrow morning at the gym and make sure I fly that flag nice and high.

"I think the most important thing is representing that silver fern with pride. Black is such an amazing colour. We look so smart and you can spot us from a mile away, so it will be great to see that sea of black coming in,” she told New Zealand Herald.
