Cambridge beats Oxford to win 156th Boat Race

Cambridge beats Oxford to win 156th Boat Race

Cambridge overtook strongly favored Oxford with a quarter of the race to go to win the 156th Boat Race by 1 1/2 lengths on Saturday and stop the Dark Blues from winning for the third year in a row.
Despite losing the toss and having the disadvantage of a long mid-race bend, Cambridge won the annual 4 1/4 mile (6.8 kilometer) race along the River Thames in London. It now leads Oxford 80-75 _ with one dead heat _ in a race first staged in 1829.
Oxford had won four of the previous five races.
