Men's Sweeps Alum Wins Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race

Cambridge University won the annual Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race on the Thames River this weekend. Men's Sweeps alum Ali Abbasi raced in 2-seat of Cambridge's Blue Boat, helping the Light Blue to the win for the first time since 2012.

CUBC handled the adverse conditions well (though their female teammates nearly swamped earlier that day), finishing two and a half lengths ahead of Oxford after the nearly-7k-long race.

Abbasi credits his summer at Riverside to his much of his recent success. Read about it in his recent Alumni Spotlight here.
