The longest America’s Cup in its 162-year history is set for an exciting final as the USA and New Zealand prepare to battle it out in today’s all-or-nothing race.

Having been behind by two points before the regatta began, Oracle were losing 8-1, but on Tuesday managed to level with New Zealand at 8-8. The event goes to a decider for only the third time in its 162-year history.

Team Oracle USA captain Jimmy Spithill said: “I think we’re the underdog and I’m going to keep running with that and use that energy.
“The exciting thing for me is seeing how this team has gelled together. Sometimes you need to face that barrel of the gun to come together. You can get wobbly in the knees or you can look into the barrel. Every day we’ve managed to step it up more.”

Meanwhile, New Zealand are still feeling confident with team captain Dean Barker saying: “We do believe we can win, we’ve known we can win this thing for a long time.”
