Still, despite the difficulties along the way, Wednesday’s victory showed the sport in its best light. Asked by reporters to describe the feeling of having pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, Spithill shared the credit with his crew. Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Oracle Team USA crushed Emirates Team New Zealand in the final race, crossing the finish line 44 seconds ahead of their rival. Its really about the team, man, Spithill said. On your own, youre nothing. But when youve got a team like this around you, they can make you look great. They did all that today and in the whole series. Im just so proud of the boys. They were looking down the barrel of a gun, and what do these guys do? They dont even flinch. Its a fantastic team. If Ellison’s team had not been caught cheating in warm up regattas in 2012 when they were found to have added extra weight to their boat the moment of victory might have come sooner for Oracle Team USA.
