According to CBC Sports, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Malcolm Howard of Victoria, British Columbia was part of the Oxford University boat that won the 160th boat race between the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge on Sunday.

The race is considered one of the most prestigious rowing events in the world. Howard was in the fifth Oxford seat of the eight man boat. The boats traveled 6.8 kilometres along the Thames River in southwest London.

The Oxford contingent also consisted of Canadians Tom Watson of Winnipeg, Manitoba who was in the second seat and Tom Swartz who was in the fourth seat.

Oxford has won 81 titles with Cambridge winning 78 times. In 1877, officials declared the race a tie.

Howard was in the Canadian boat that won a gold medal in the men's eights competition at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. He also won a silver medal in the men's eights competition at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
