Here's more about each of our fantastic nominees: 


5000m Indoor Rowing World Record (Tom George - Peterhouse)  

Tom kept this one quiet in the build up to the Boat Race, but what an incredible sporting feat for a current Cambridge student to set a world record – Tom showing his supreme athleticism and international rowing credentials. Anyone who has jumped on an erg before will recognise what an incredible time this is! See how long you can keep up with those splits... Goldie Boathouse has seen some sporting feats but perhaps this tops them all? 


American Football Varsity winning touchdown (Tim Andrew – Jesus) 

0-12 down with 20 minutes left to play in the 2022 Varsity Bowl, step up Tim Andrew. First, Tim scores a touchdown to give the Pythons a chance in the game, and with the score at 7-12, Tim scores once again. This time, it’s a stunning 77 yard touchdown to put Cambridge into the lead and win the game, as Tim runs the length of the field past the Oxford team who can hardly lay a hand on him.  


Men’s Ice Hockey Varsity winning goal (Martin Limbäck-Stokin – St. John’s)  

It’s the final period in a tense game which has had everything so far – the home crowd are cheering Cambridge on as they press towards goal but Oxford are giving as good as they get in an end to end match. As the clock ticks down with 4 minutes left, Martin Limbäck-Stokin winds up a rocket that crashes in off the crossbar to put Cambridge into a 3-2 lead. The goal will be remembered as one of the best in Ice Hockey Varsity history!  


Women's Lightweight Boat Race Victory 

A comprehensive victory for Cambridge in a show of pure boat race brilliance!

“This year's lightweight women's blue boat managed to beat Oxford by 15 Lengths (47 seconds) in their boat race, which has never happened before in a clean race, while beating the course record by 3.5 minutes! This race has already gone down in history as a spectacular display of Lightweights women's rowing.”
