30 July, 2014 (ISN) New Zealand were forced to work hard for their victory over Jamaica as sprint sensation Usain Bolt watched from the athletes section of the stand.

The Jamaican women ran the New Zealanders close in a tight match that could have gone either way, especially when Jamaica were winning 24-23 at the close of the 2nd quarter although they won the 4th quarter by 6 clear points.
