It shouldn't have ended like this. Team New Zealand were up 8-1 in the America's Cup and only needed one more race to clinch the title. But then it slipped away and Team USA finished a historic comeback on Wednesday and took home the 34th America's Cup.
The best reaction to New Zealand's defeat came from that country's Prime Minister, John Key, who summed up a nation's collective emotions in one tweet.
Bugger. #AmericasCup— John Key (@johnkeypm) September 25, 2013
We feel your pain sir. And this is what the race looked like from the winning side.
