SURG SPORTS: The Australian Boat Race 2016

This year SURG will broadcast the Australian Boat Race - an annual match race between the Sydney and Melbourne University Boat Clubs. We're pretty sure this is the first ever live sport broadcast in our history and we're pretty excited about it.

As part of the race each club can include two graduate members in their crew, which this year includes Olympic medalist Alexander 'Sasha' Belonogoff. Sameer Murthy sat down with Sasha during Verge Festival, and you can hear the interview below

We'll be live from 0800-1000, 23 October 2016 with all the action from the race and hope to bring you more exciting news and extensions of our coverage of campus culture in future.

Check out the Australian Boat Race site for more info.
