Hard-luck loser Kiwis back for another shot at America’s Cup

Thursday, May 25, 2017

 

QUOTE-UNQUOTE: "Team New Zealand reached match point in 2013 against Oracle, which had been penalized two points in the standings for the biggest cheating scandal in America’s Cup history. The Kiwis were well ahead in what would have been the clinching race. But due to fickle winds, the time limit expired and the race was abandoned. Oracle stunned the Kiwis by winning the next eight races to retain the silver trophy. It was one of the greatest comebacks — and collapses — in sports. A lesser team might have folded. The Kiwis didn’t. They sacked Barker, who’s now skipper of startup syndicate SoftBank Team Japan, and powered on against the establishment." –Bernie Wilson, writing an insightful piece for the Associated Press that hit the wires tonight – a MUST READ for America's Cup fans.
