Race Video: Harvard and Brown Battle to the Line in Worcester
We're heavy on videos this week, but this one is too good to miss–the men's varsity heavyweight eight final at Sprints this year was an absolute barn burner, with Harvard and Brown pushing each other all the way across the finish in a race that was determined by less than a canvas. The crew from Brown knew as soon as they crossed the line that they had ended Harvard's bid for an undefeated season. The margin? 0.3 seconds. The result? Things just got very interesting in the men's varsity eight field for the upcoming IRA National Championship.
So far, our RR readers' polls show Virginia as the favorite to win the NCAA team title this year in West Windsor, while the Washington men are heavy favorites to take the men's varsity eight title at IRAs on the Cooper River. Get involved and cast your vote!
Thanks to Princeton Crew for uploading another great race video to their YouTube Channel!
