Oxford wins on River Thames

Oxford won its fifth Boat Race in seven years on the River Thames in London on Sunday after an early clash of blades damaged university rival Cambridge’s hopes of victory. Looking for its first victory in the annual event since 2012, the Cambridge crew had an aggressive start. However, the 160th race was effectively over after just five minutes when the Light Blues’ two-seat Luke Juckett of the United States slipped from his position, allowing Oxford to pull clear, after the boats had got too close. Juckett almost went overboard before regaining his balance but his team lost precious time and never recovered. Cambridge still leads the series 81-78, with one tie.
