Dame Valerie Adams received her first vaccination with the Pfizer Covid vaccine before the Tokyo Olympics.
Before getting the jab, Adams told health officials that she was “quite excited.”
“Oh, it didn’t hurt either … I didn’t feel anything,” she said before crediting the nurse.
Adams was full of jokes for vaccinated people this morning.
“Don’t judge me, I sing when I accomplish this,” she said.
Adams pulled up his sleeve and said, “Now I can see my biceps.”
When health officials asked the Olympic gold medalist for her name, she replied, “Queen of Tonga.” Health officials replied, “Sorry, I can’t say that.”
Adams is one of the “few” Olympic athletes who will be vaccinated before traveling to Tokyo in the near future.
Adams will be competing in the fifth Olympics this year.
She has been training with fellow Olympic shot put player Tom Walsh in Christchurch under the direction of Dale Stevenson since late last year.
Adams is the mother of her husband Gabriel Price and her two children.
