Defending champion Valerie Adams books her place in tonight's final of the women's shot put.

New Zealand's Valerie Adams qualified for the final of the women's shot put inside London's Olympic Stadium this morning.

A throw of 20.40m was enough for the defending champion to secure her progression, although it didn't allow her to win the round.

That was Nadzeya Ostapchuk from Belarus, who recorded a distance of 20.76m.

These two competitors have been rated as the joint favourites by numerous bookmakers to win gold during tonight's final, which is due to take place at 7.15pm.
