GoPro Congratulates Oracle Team USA on America's Cup Victory

GoPro, maker of the world’s most versatile camera and official supplier of Oracle Team USA, would like to congratulate the America’s Cup champions on their successful title defense. With Skipper Jimmy Spithill at the helm, Oracle Team USA steered its 72-foot cutting-edge catamaran to its eighth straight victory. 

Oracle Team USA heroically battled back from a devastating 1-8 deficit in points to Team New Zealand, winning eight consecutive races. Heading into the final round, the two opponents stood deadlocked in a tie, but it was Oracle Team USA that rode its incredible momentum to the finish line with an expansive 45-second margin of victory. 

This 2013 America's Cup victory marks one of the greatest sports comebacks on record, and GoPro congratulates Oracle Team USA on penning another page in the history books. 




Mark Burnett, five-time Emmy award winner and avid GoPro customer, said in a previous statement, "We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next."

"In a world of smartphones and increasingly small cameras, GoPro is still the film fans device of choice and the rugged gadget that will launch the careers of many future directors. If in doubt, check out the home made rocket that took a GoPro to space or the shark footage, both on YouTube." - T3 Award for the GoPro HERO3

"Despite a lot of newcomers in the field, GoPro is still the leader in adventure cameras. The new Hero3 Black manages to pack an f/2.8 wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel sensor, and the power to shoot 30 still frames per second into a camera body that’s smaller than a bar of soap" – Outside Magazine "Gear of the Year" 2013
