America's Cup goes to the Swiss

With the 4th of July holiday, I forgot to mention that the Swiss team beat the Kiwi team for the trophy. I didn't even hear about the race on the news, probably because the US wasn't in the running.

The Alinghi team repeated as America's Cup champion, defeating Emirates Team New Zealand by just one second in the seventh flight to win the series 5-2. Switzerland is only the third country to repeat in the event's 156-year history.
