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.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
