Boat Race: Cambridge anxious to retain the prize

Tuesday 22 March 2011 01:00 GMT

Cambridge Boat Club president Derek Rasmussen says the "testosterone is flying" in the Light Blue camp as they prepare to defend their crown in the Boat Race on Saturday.

Rasmussen was part of last year's crew that won back the title from Oxford for the first time since 2007. The American said yesterday: "We've got a lot of nerves and eight big guys living in one house, so we're all really anxious and ready to race. The testosterone is flying... I think we had a pretty good mindset last year and we're trying to bring the same mindset this year... just to go out and fight."
