Val Adams at Eden Park

Hundreds of Auckland school kids had the chance to compete and dance alongside Valerie Adams today.

The Olympic gold medal winner was the guest of honour at Get Set Go, a programme run by Athletics New Zealand at Eden Park.

She led more than 400 primary school students in a dance aerobic warm up, which included testing her Gangnam Style dance skills, before participants had two hours of games and activities.

Schools were invited to send a team of Active Achievers, all from years one to three, to take part in the event.

The students had all achieved something special through being active, such as increases in confidence, making new friends and learning new skills.
