VOTWs: The Big Row, and The Tiger Men and Women in Action v. Brown and UVa



The above video comes from the Content Cup between the Princeton and Brown heavyweight men's varsity 8s. The racing was quite close, with the Tigers eventually taking the race by a little less than a length. This is yet another great video, shot from the launch and posted by Princeton -- the Tigers have been leading the way in video race coverage this year. The same is true of the video below, which features the No. 1 Tiger Open Women taking on No. 5 Virginia, whom Princeton defeated by roughly 12 seconds in the 1V over the weekend. UVa fought well and battled back to win the V4 competition over entries from Princeton, Columbia and Tennessee.



The last video I've included here (recorded and produced by the RR Editorial Staff) comes from 'The Big Row' between Cal and Stanford over the weekend, which featured an upset with the No. 3 Cal women defeating No. 2 Stanford in the varsity eight. The video shows a clip of the 2V race as the crews come underneath the bridge just past the 1000m mark, as well as a clip of the 1V race for the Lambert Cup as the two eights emerge from beneath the bridge.
