The Oxford women’s Blue Boat, stroked by 32-year old Caryn Davies, ‘the most decorated Olympic athlete to ever compete in any of the Boat Races’. She has gold medals from stroking the U.S. Women’s Eight in Beijing and London and a silver from Athens. She also has four World Champs and five World Cup golds. Sometimes, a coach’s choice is easy.
