Exeter students row to Boat Race victories
Congratulations to Ben Myers (2008, Physics) and all the Oxford rowers in this year’s Boat Race on their resounding victory this weekend!
Cambridge had been thought to be the favourites ahead of the race but on the day itself Oxford led from the start. They were already a length ahead by Hammersmith Bridge, and Cambridge failed to produce a much-needed surge in order to overtake them. In the end, Oxford won by four clear lengths.
Exeter’s Ben Myers, President of OUBC and a veteran of last year’s race, was clearly delighted as he spoke to reporters afterwards.
Exeter was also represented in Isis, the Oxford second boat, where Ben Snodin (2007, Physics) was part of the crew who beat Cambridge in the Isis v Goldie race earlier in the day.
Congratulations to both our rowers!
