  • Dan Topolski enjoyed an illustrious and colourful Boat Race career, coaching Oxford to 10 successive victories from 1976.

    That run came to an end in 1986, and, most notably, Oxford oarsman Rick Ross wanted revenge.

    Ross returned the following year with members of the US national rowing team enrolling as students.

    However, disagreements over training methods and crew selection caused a bitter clash between the Oxford president Donald MacDonald and the American oarsmen.
