Can we just talk about the fact that this is a coxed quad…. Who Races coxed quads
This is probably one of the most powerful photos i took at the Head of the River last weekend.
This Year 9 crew caught a crab and the oar snapped. After finishing the race, the boy in front turned around and hugged his teammate. It’s okay.
I honestly was so moved by this and i think it really shows the commitment and importance of teamwork in a sport like rowing. It’s all about support and braving conditions together, both the good and the bad.
I think it’s beautiful.
I feel obligated to point out this was a year 9 crew. Without a cox I doubt they would’ve gone particularly straight
