It's now winner-takes-all at the America's Cup
2013-09-24By Tom Isitt

In one of the the biggest come-backs in sporting history, Oracle Team USA has overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to take the America's Cup down to the very last race, winning both races yesterday to tie the series at eight races each.

The Americans won Race 17 by 27 seconds and Race 18 by 54 seconds. So, after more than two weeks of racing, during which Emirates Team New Zealand surrendered a seven-race lead, it comes down to one race on Wednesday. Winner takes all. And only the third time in the race's 162 year history that it has gone down to the wire.

Team USA has won nine times in the last 13 races to tie the series, and with the momentum firmly in their favour it would be a brave man to bet against them. Check back for the result, and a full wrap-up of what has been an enthralling encounter.
