America's Cup - Emirates Team New Zealand win Louis Vuitton and is the Challenger for 32nd Edition

Emirates Team New Zealand NZL92 won the Louis Vuitton Cup with a convincing 5-0 over Luna Rossa Prada Challenge ITA94. The Kiwis surprised everyone in this Final and very few would have ever imagined in a so much one sided contest. Much more was in doubt after race one resulted in a close 8 second win for the Kiwis and everyone thought this would take the whole 9 races of the contest to be finished, but the Kiwis showed better speed, great crew work and superb match racing tactics and the more the score went up in there favour the more they where looking unbeatable for the Italian Challenger. Now Emirates Team New Zealand will face Swiss Defender Alinghi winner of the 31st Edition in Auckland, just what is a rematch of the 2003 final. Now we just have to wait for Saturday 23rd June 1500 hours CET Time for the much awaited match to start.
