As Auckland reached the end of another week in level 3 lockdown, Dame Valerie Adams found a way to have a bit of Friday night fun ...

After discovering her wedding dress at the back of her closet, she decided to relive that special memory by trying the gown on - because who wouldn’t want to wear their dress one more time?

Taking to Instagram, the 36-year-old Olympic medalist shared a stunning collection of photos of her posing in the white full-length silk-satin and lace gown.

The Kiwi shot put champion captioned the post: "Our Friday night is spent decluttering our wardrobe👀👗Gabe found my wedding dress so I tried it on for a laugh 😂👰🏽‍♀️.

"And it still fits ✅ which made me feel better 😛 2/4/2016 was a fun day ❤️."

She added: "@johnzimmermanncouture the dress is still going strong, maybe Kimoana may like it some day… or not 💁🏽‍♀️ #weddingbouquet #lockdownfun #laugh #smile."

Val and Gabriel Price - who were family friends since childhood through their parents - tied the knot in a small Mormon ceremony at Temple View in Hamilton in 2016.
