Sir Matthew Pinsent CBE is perhaps the most distinguished oarsman ever to compete in The Boat Race.
He was in the Oxford Blue Boat in 1990, 91 & 93, winning twice but was losing President in 1993.
In 1992 he missed out on a Blue to take time to win his first Olympic Gold with Steve Redgrave at the Barcelona Olympics.
He went on to win 3 more golds, two with Blues; in 2000 with Oxford's Tim Foster and in 2004 with Oxford's Ed Coode.
In 2011 Pinsent returned to the Boat Race appearing in and winning his first Veterans Race. He was the umpire for The 2013 BNY Mellon Boat Race.
