Kaliese Spencer has described the the 2014 season as a "great background" for the future.

"It is a great background for my confidence in future. I started the season too early, (but) I did everything possible to keep the shape till Continental Cup.'
She, however, said "to be honest, it was not difficult as I have good coach, professional training programme and, what is most important, big motivation. It was important to finish the year on a high note.

Spencer rounded off her near-perfect season with a peerless performance in the 400m hurdles, adding an IAAF Continental Cup title to the Commonwealth Games gold medal she won earlier this summer.

The Jamaican took the expected eight points for Americas as she strode home in 53.81, just 0.4 off her world-leading time set on home soil in Kingston back in June.

As in Glasgow, it was Great Britain’s Eilidh Child who chased her home, the Scot taking seven points for Europe in 54.42 as Bahrain’s Kemi Adekoya, representing Asia-Pacific, was third in 54.70.
