The Hard Yards: The highs and lows of Boat Race preparation
“Good friendships are forged in tough times and nothing does that like The Boat Race.”
The Boat Races channel has produced this absorbing behind-the-scenes look at the University Boat Clubs, and the highs and lows of their Boat Race experience. From the buzz the rowers feel when the boat is moving well to the immense exhaustion they endure both physically and mentally during the gruelling training sessions, the athletes go on a true journey with their crew mates, balancing a professional training programme with academic commitments at two world-leading universities.
For most this results in camaraderie and unbreakable bonds that can last a lifetime.
