ON WINNING: Jimmy Spithill Recaps Oracle’s America’s Cup Comeback

“For one reason or another this team just seemed to come together in the tough moments. When the pressure came on, that’s when this team really responded.”

A little reminder that just over a year ago, Oracle Team USA mounted one of the most amazing comebacks in sporting history, coming back from an 8-1 deficit to tie and then defeat Emirates Team New Zealand. A year later, Oracle’s skipper, 35-year-old Australian Jimmy Spithill, can remember those moments like they happened seconds ago…but he still has a hard time putting the sheer exhilaration of winning the America’s Cup into words.
