Lisa Adams has thrown further than the world record in the women's Para Shot Put.

As her sister and coach Dame Valerie Adams watched on, Lisa Adams hurled a 14.13-metre monster to throw further than the F37 world record at Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub in Christchurch on Saturday.

Adams bettered the previous record of 13.96m set by Franziska Liebhardt, of Germany, in Rio back in 2016.

However, it will not count as an official world record as the New Zealand Track and Field Championships is an approved meet but not sanctioned with World Para Athletics.


To be a sanctioned meeting, there would need to be delegates from World Para Athletics present.

Adams, who has cerebral palsy, is aiming to compete in Tokyo at next year's Olympics.
