slide1

The Boat Race is halted as a swimmer interrupts the 158th Boat Race on the river Thames, London, Saturday April 7, 2012. Cambridge won a dramatic Boat Race against Oxford on Saturday following a 31-minute mid-race postponement after a man jumped into the River Thames and swam between the crews. When the race was restarted halfway along the course, Oxford's German rower Dr. Hanno Wienhausen lost half of his oar after the crews clashed allowing Cambridge to cruise to victory up against effectively seven opponents. A margin of victory wasn't given by officials. (AP Photo/PA, Anthony Devlin) UNITED KINGDOM OUT
