Triumph for Holly Game and the Cambridge University Women's Boat Club

On the 25 of March, Holly Game (seat 5) rowing in The Woman's Boat race at Henley won against Oxford in dramatic style.

After leading by 2 lengths Cambridge's no 2 caught a crab, allowing Oxford to catch up and leaving the result down to a sprint for the line.

Holly is now back at Cambridge training for the Cambridge Small Boats regatta, where she will be competing in a pair, and for the British Universities regatta where she will be competing in the 8 and 4. Holly is hoping to trial for Team GB next year and wants to improve her sculling over the summer with the help of DRC.
