Oracle Team USA has won its fifth straight victory at the America's Cup against challenger Emirates Team New Zealand. The race in the San Francisco Bay has narrowed the Kiwis lead of 8-6.
The Oracle Team, owned by billionaire Larry Ellison, clinched their fifth successive win on Monday to dent challenger New Zealand’s chances of winning the trophy. The Emirates Team still leads 8-6.
A week ago, Team USA seemed like it was going to lose the world's oldest sporting trophy but now looks strong enough to win the 34th edition of the race. The prize will stay in the US as long as the Americans can keep the Kiwis from winning one more race.
