The Australian Diamonds have come from behind to claim the 2011 World Netball Championships title in a thrilling finish, with a goal in the last second of extra time to secure the 58-57 victory over New Zealand at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Sunday night. Trailing by six goals at halftime, second-half substitute Caitlin Bassett converted the winning goal with the last shot on the game, extracting revenge for last year's Commonwealth Games final defeat and reclaiming the world number one ranking in game for the ages.
"I'm trying not to cry, this is the most overwhelming the greatest experience of my life and to be able to do it with such a great team and to have Sharelle here on the sidelines is amazing," Chelsea Pitman said.
The Australian Diamonds are hungry to avenge last year's Commonwealth Games gold medal defeat to the New Zealand Silver Ferns when the two sides meet in the final of the 2011 World Netball Championship final tonight. The Diamonds were left to collect their second consecutive Commonwealth Games silver medal after losing 66-64 in double extra time, in arguably one of the greatest matches in the teams long rivalry last year.
"It makes us hungrier than anything else because we do remember what that felt like so we do not want to have that feeling again," Diamonds captain Natalie von Bertouch said. "The girls will be very fired up."
