11:30 am on 5 April 2013

New Zealand's champion shot-putter Valerie Adams has confirmed she'll compete at the Prefontaine Classic meeting in Oregon next month.

Adams returns to her Swiss base next week and the Eugene meeting will be the first major outing before the Diamond League series and the World Championships in August.

Adams will attempt to become one of the few athletes to have won four world titles when she competes in Moscow.

The Eugene field includes London silver and bronze medallists, Russia's Yevgeniya Kolodko and China's Lijiao Gong.
