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.
