America's Cup: New Zealand take convincing win over Sweden

There were celebrations after Emirates Team New Zealand sailed into a convincing 5-2 win against Sweden’s Artemis Racing in the Challenger final in a rainy Bermuda. The Swedes fought hard, but the Kiwis were persistently faster and more agile.

They now face title holders Oracle Team USA for a revenge match in the 35th America’s Cup. Back in 2013, New Zealand suffered a crushing defeat as their opponents made an historic comeback in San Francisco. But this year Glenn Ashby’s team have been hot favourites throughout the competition.
