Rowing: a Frenchman wins the famous race against Oxford with Cambridge


Noem Mouelle (21) won Sunday in the ranks of Cambridge the mythical Boat Race, rowing race between the two prestigious British universities.

Noem Mouelle (21) became this Sunday the third Frenchman to win the Boat Race, this legendary race which pits Oxford against Cambridge each year, the two most prestigious British universities.

The Light Blues (nickname of the Cambridge team) won this 168th edition in complicated weather conditions on the Thames, the 86th victory in their history (against 81 for Oxford, and a draw).

Mouelle is in the UK for a PhD in particle physics.

A member of the Perreux-sur-Marne club, he is a member of the France under-23 team and took part in the last World Championships.

The last Frenchman to win the Boat Race was Bastien Ripoll in 2006.

No less than 250,000 people lined up along the London river and were able to witness the women's race, also won by Cambridge, beforehand.
