Shrivvy success:
Oxford cox, Nick Brodie
Local lad Nick Brodie was soaked through but jubilant this afternoon after steering his Oxford crew to victory in the 154th boat race.
Brodie - also the Oxford club president - given the now traditional dowsing by the rest of his winning teammates after Oxford crushed Cambridge, finishing 22 seconds ahead.
The 21-year-old from Shrivenham clearly heard on his TV microphone urging his crew on as they battled back from an early set-back at the start.
Brodie, who is studying Geography at St. Catherine's College, also extra pleased to finally taste a win after coxing Oxford to defeat last year.

"We were always the better crew and coped better with the conditions," Brodie said.
"It's a great feeling to finally win one. And the perfect way to finish my time at Oxford."
