Redgrave punches the air after Oxford win by a length
Natalie Redgrave earned her first rowing honours as one of the Oxford crew who won the Women's Boat Race.
Redgrave, daughter of five-time Olympic champion Sir Steve, helped Oxford beat Cambridge by a length on Sunday.
She was cheered on by her father and mother Lady Redgrave, a former Olympian now the GB rowing team doctor, as Oxford won the 2000m race in Henley.
"You can have the right genes and quality but it is the work you have to put in to go with it," she said.
"It feels fantastic."
Redgrave Jr tried rowing as a 13-year-old but did not enjoy it and only returned to the sport 18 months ago, when she began studying medicine at Pembroke College, Oxford.
Sir Steve Redgrave retired from rowing 11 years ago, after clinching gold in his fifth successive Olympics.
On Saturday, he was part of the BBC commentary team for the men's Boat Race on the Thames in London.
Her mother started rowing at university and in two years was competing internationally and at the Olympics - so we have high hopes for her
"I spoke to him last night and he just told me to keep calm," said Natalie, 19, who is 6ft 2in tall.
"He came down and watched me train a couple of times.
"For a long time people were always asking me when I was going to take up rowing and it was getting quite annoying.
"I decided I'm my own person and I'm going to do it for me."
Sir Steve Redgrave, joined by his former rowing partner, and Natalie's godfather, Sir Matthew Pinsent, at the race, said: "I'm really proud of her. She's got the ability to go to a higher level.
"It's funny because she has always been adamant she wasn't going to row but when we found out she started rowing we were pleasantly surprised.
"Her mother started rowing at university and in two years was competing internationally and at the Olympics - so we have high hopes for her.
"Obviously there is pressure heaped on her because I'm her father but she's taking it really well, better than I thought."
Having won the men's open-weight race on Saturday, Oxford also won the men's lightweight race in Henley, while Cambridge won the women's reserve and lightweight events.
Whereas the men's Boat Race tends to be dominated by post-graduate students, including many current and former internationals, the women's race is a step below international standard.
However, former Cambridge college rower Anna Watkins, who won a world title for Great Britain in the double scull last November, was on hand for the prize-giving and said: "The quality of the racing today was very high."
