'USA' finishes ahead in race two

BMW ORACLE Racing, the American challenger, representing the Golden Gate Yacht Club, crossed the finish line ahead of Alinghi for the second consecutive race.

But the Swiss defender approached the finish line flying a red protest flag, putting the overall result into doubt.

The official result of the 33rd America’s Cup is pending the result of this protest.

The first team to earn two wins is the winner of the 33rd America’s Cup.
