Oxford demolish Cambridge in 160th Boat Race

Oxford cox, Laurence Harvey (C) is thrown into the water by his team after winning the 160th annual Oxford University against Cambridge University boat race on the river Thames in London on April 6, 2014.

Oxford emphatically demolished Cambridge by 11 lengths to win their fifth University Boat Race in seven years against their old rivals, in the 160th edition of the world-famous rowing competition.

The dark blues were heavy favourites going into the 160th edition of the contest on the River Thames and took an early lead following a collision five minutes into the race.

Cambridge's Luke Juckett briefly fell from his seat after a clash of oars, leaving Oxford to power clear and cross the finish line in 18 minutes, 36 seconds with the biggest winning margin since 1973.

Oxford have now won 10 races since 2000, but Cambridge still have their noses ahead in the overall tally, having won 81 to Oxford's 78 with one dead heat.

Cambridge protested about the collision after the race but it was dismissed by race umpire Richard Phelps.
