    Good footage of Oxford rowing crew practising on River Thames.

  • Description

    Oxford Crew - Putney, London.

    Oxford University crew rowing on River Thames, probably practising for Oxford and Cambridge boat race. Very good footage. Mostly tracking shots staying near boat; of the crew of 8 athletic young college students all rowing; their movements synchronised. A 9th man sits in the end of the boat (cox).

    At one point; there are some major buildings in BG. In some of the CU tracking shots one sees that this sport requires strength and endurance; the boys are grimacing and straining as they pull the oars.

    Races. Sports.
