Adams chases only major trophy she doesn't currently hold

6:40 pm on 6 March 2012

New Zealand's world and Olympic shot put champion Valerie Adams hopes to add to her trophy cabinet this week the only major title she doesn't currently hold.

Adams will compete at the World Indoor champs in Istanbul this weekend, hoping to wrest the title from long time rival

Nadzeya Ostapchuk.

Adams won the title in 2008 but lost to the Belarussian in 2010.

That remains her her only defeat in a major championship since 2005, when she finished third at the World Track and Field Championships in Helsinki.
