Spartan ambassador Laura Geitz has led the Australian netball team to a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games.

The team – known as the Diamonds – scored an emphatic 58-40 win over arch-rivals New Zealand to end its gold medal drought from recent Commonwealth Games.

The win is a fantastic and well-earned achievement for the netball star, now captaining the team in this year’s event after being on the bench in Delhi 4 years prior.
