Oxford defeat Cambridge in 155th Boat RaceMarch 30th, 2009 - 8:00 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar.30 (ANI): Oxford defeated Cambridge in the 155th annual boat race.
Fortunes change quickly in the Boat Race, and Saturday’s was no exception. For the first seven minutes Cambridge had it all their own way, despite fractionally fluffing the start when the umpire’s “attention”, but thereafter, the Light Blues (Oxford) quickly caught up and held the cards till the end.
By the time the race reached the Harrods Wall, nearly six minutes in, Oxford were motoring.
A great Cambridge crew did nothing wrong, they just could not quite match the power, team effort and ability ranked against them. (ANI)
