Olympic gold medalist Valerie Adams married Gabriel Price in the Hamilton New Zealand Temple on April 3, 2016. The shot put champion told Woman's Day, "The temple is beautiful and the ceremony inside where we sealed the deal was wonderful." 

The couple, who have known each other since they were children, attended the same ward when they were children, and Gabriel's father was the bishop.

"This is even more amazing than winning an Olympic gold medal," Valerie told Woman's Day. "That's outstanding in its own special way, but it doesn't compare to how I feel now."
