’Untold, The Race of the Century’ airs on Netflix on September 6, 2022.

In September 1983,, Australia won the America’s Cup, breaking 132 years of American domination, and in the process, breaking the longest winning record in modern sporting history.

John Bertrand AO, Skipper, Australia II, said to me ahead of the screening, "The Confederation of Australian Sport voted the Australia II victory as the greatest team performance in 200 years of Australian sport. I am proud to be part of our Australia II team. To be part of Australia’s sporting history is an absolute honour."

KA-6 crew - John Bertrand (Skipper), Will Baillieu, Colin Beashel, Rob Brown, Peter Costello, Damian Fewster, Sir James Hardy (alternate helm), Ken Judge, Skip Lissiman, John Longley, Scott McAllister, Brian Richardson, Phil Smidmore, Grant Simmer, and Hugh Treherne.

UNTOLD: Race of the Century premieres on Netflix September 6

About UNTOLD: Race of the Century A chronicle of the thrilling 1983 America’s Cup, “Race of the Century” is a classic underdog story. It tells the tale of the scrappy group of Australians who band together to dethrone the New York Yacht Club, and break the longest-running win streak in history— 132 years!— in the most prestigious sailing competition in the world. Key members of the 1983 U.S. and Australian crews sit down for interviews sharing their experience of this ultimate race to victory.

Directed by: Chapman Way and Maclain Way

About UNTOLD VOL 2 The critically-acclaimed series returns with UNTOLD Volume 2, a four-week docu-series event that once again brings fresh eyes to epic tales from the wide world of sports. From football to basketball and streetball to sailing, these stories aren’t the ones you’ve heard before, even if you think you have. Premiering weekly, each film kicks off at a pivotal moment and then delves deep into what happened beyond the headlines, as told by those who lived it, to reveal the grit, resilience, heartbreak, triumph, violence, comedy and pathos beneath the sweat. Whether it’s the unknown tale of football star Manti Te’o’s online connection, the ref behind the NBA gambling scandal, the rags-to-riches tale of a scrappy company transforming streetball into a phenomenon, or the astonishing Australian upset of the U.S. in the America’s Cup, UNTOLD gets to the heart of the passion and single mindedness it takes to be a champion and the ways in which the triumphs can be undone off the field. Films are directed by Chapman Way, Maclain Way, Ryan Duffy, Tony Vainuku, Kevin Wilson Jr., and David Terry Fine.

Films releasing weekly for four weeks: August 16, 23, 30 & September 6
