Rowing, Oxford: 1 reviews and 1 photos
Rowing is one of the most popular sports at Oxford, and amongst the colleges the competition is fierce. Whilst the drawbacks of rowing are all too obvious - early starts at 6am, training 7 days a week, early nights, cutting back on study and/or a social life, and counting calories (in some cases), there is something about the sport that continues to draw people in.
The best known rowing event is the annual Oxford-Cambridge boat race, for which selection is a huge achievement, but even within Oxford, the competition between colleges, and the lengths they are prepared to go to in training and preapration is amzing. The biggest internal competition is the Head of the River, held just before finals in May.
