Dame Valerie Adams has achieved another career highlight - this time winning the Gumboot Throwing championship.
She threw the winning toss at the Rural Games in Palmerston North, beating the current champion despite never having thrown one before.
She just missed out on beating the gumboot throwing record by about a metre.
Fellow Olympian Mahe Drysdale didn't have quite the same success, losing the men's round.

The public can also have a go at events like cow pat tossing, and kids tractor races.
