Local Netballer in World Win

Well done to Chelsea Pitman from Botany, who was part of the Australian Diamonds netball team that has taken out the World Championship. In a thrilling final, the Australian Diamonds eclipsed arch rivals New Zealand to take a 58-57 win at the World Championships in Singapore.  The game, fitting for a final, was tied 46-46 at full time after the Diamonds clawed their way back. In a seven minute each way tussle in extra time, the Diamonds came through to avenge a Commonwealth Games loss to the Kiwis.  

For Chelsea, who has graced Eastern Suburbs netball courts for some time, it was a great result, as her parents let me know.  Well done Chelsea and all your Aussie teammates.
