NZ rowers enjoy record win with Cambridge

07 Апреля, 2017, 02:05 | Author: Evan Mason

Coach Sean Bowden has already set his sights on yet another win for Oxford's men in the Cancer Research UK Boat Races after recording his 12th triumph with the dark blues.

A length ahead by Barnes Bridge, Oxford didn't quite have Cambridge breathing down their necks, but the Light Blues had done enough to make a race of it, always in sight of the leaders but never quite close enough. Cambridge had come out second best in the battle for territory, and soon they were to come out second best in the race.

The annual Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race will go ahead after an unexploded Second World War bomb found near the starting line was safely removed.

Kiwis Anna Dawson (fourth from left) and Alice White (fourth from right) rowed Cambridge to victory over Oxford, their first in the famous London race since 2012.

They secured victory in 18 minutes, 34 seconds and with an 11-length lead after Oxford's damaging, stuttering start gave them an exceptional advantage.

The police have confirmed that World War II ordnance discovered yesterday (1 April) on the Chelsea shoreline by Putney Bridge was assessed and has been removed by specialist officers.

"I'm just so proud of my squad, so proud of the team this year", Brown, who was in the bow seat, said. "We knew on the race day that anything could happen". Cambridge's attempts to recover eventually cost them shortly after Mile Post, when they fought for the favoured narrow water approaching Hammersmith Bridge and the two boats' blades nearly collided.

Around the vast Surrey Bend, of which Oxford had the inside line for, the latter continued to hold off repeated Cambridge pushes to maintain a small margin of clear water.

"It was good rowing from all the crews, just a shame we didn't shoe the Tabs as hard as we could", said Oxford student Jake Hutchinson.

Asked about the size of the race, he added: "It's huge, there's a huge crowd, there's a couple of helicopters - it's like nothing I've experienced before".
