Oxford humbled by Cambridge in Boat Race

By Declan Warrington

Cambridge University have beaten Oxford to win the 162nd edition of the Boat Race and end their rivals' recent dominance.

The victory was their first in four years, and came after a run of six wins from eight for Oxford, whose women had won the women's edition on Sunday afternoon.

Race favourites Cambridge had won the toss, and chose to start on the Surrey station on the same south side of London's river Thames as Oxford's women.

After his side's victory, Cambridge president Henry Hoffstot said: "I'm at an absolute loss for words. After losing twice, coming out here and winning is a feeling like nothing I've ever experienced before."
