Victory for Cambridge’s Men’s and Women’s Crews in the Boat Race 2021
Cambridge won the men’s and women’s races during two hard-fought battles on the Great Ouse at Ely
Cambridge scored a double victory in the Boat Race 2021, with both the men’s and women’s crews coming out on top following two thrilling races.
The event was moved from the usual course, along the Thames in London, because of a combination of the COVID-19 pandemic and repair work on Hammersmith Bridge.
Professor Stephen Toope, Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge University, paid tribute to both crews.
“Huge congratulations to both crews in the Boat Race. They did the Light Blues proud in two hard-fought duels against battling and determined Oxford opponents.
“Every member of every crew played their part in an afternoon of extraordinary sporting excitement.”
