Varsity Marathon and Polo 2016

The marathon start

The Varsity marathon races took place over a four-mile course running between the town centre and Grantchester, with the results decided by the aggregated scores of the first three finishers from each university in each race. The men’s race ran first and was well contested with five paddlers from each of Cambridge and Oxford. Victory was taken by Sam Plummer for Cambridge, showing his considerable experience, though the team was unable to follow his example with three capsizes (and a marauding swan) killing off their chances of victory.

Freestyle

Last weekend we had our annual Varsity competition against Oxford University Canoe and Kayak Club. Sadly it was an overall loss for Cambridge. However, every event was closely fought so a massive congratulations to everyone that took part. We did manage to triumph over the dark blues in some events with both the Men's Polo and Men's Freestyle teams recording wins. Final congratulations go to individuals who got top 3 finishes - Shahid Wahab for 2nd in Freestyle and to Alex Ross for 3rd in both Freestyle and Marathon. A full report will be written up soon.
