Local resident and former schoolboy Matt Hamilton helped Oxford’s Lightweight crew to victory over Cambridge in the Boat Race on Sunday.

Hamilton, who studies Biochemistry at Oriol College, was rowing in his first Boat Race since joining Oxford in 2018.

The OH enjoyed a successful junior rowing career at Hampton School, representing the 1st VIII, as well as being selected for senior international honours, rowing for England at the Home Countries International regatta in 2017.

Oxford’s three-length victory was their second consecutive win over traditional rivals Cambridge.
