Cambridge crew to enter an Olympic medallist in the Varsity Eight race

May 16, 2013


Mirka Knapková will not be the only Olympic medallist in the battle between university crews as part of the 100th Prague Mayors Eights sponsored by ČSOB Pojišťovna. The Cambridge will include George Nash, the British “bronze” rower.

But it is not just the name of George Nash that will attract attention during the Varsity Eight race sponsored by ČSOB Penzijní společnost. It is the whole British crew that will be the centre of attention. This is because no fewer than five crew members have taken part in the famous Boat Race.

Milan Bruncvík, the first Czech participator in the Boat Race, will also start in the race. The former successful student at the Czech Technical University in Prague made his appearance in the Prague Mayors Eights in Dukla Prague colours in the past. Now he is going to switch to the renowned Cambridge team.

“I’m already looking forward to my home race and Czech spectators,” said the twenty-eight years old athlete and two-time Olympic competitor.
