Oxford grad through to Olympic rowing semi-finals

They’re calling it a ‘boat of legends’


Oxford grad Constantine Louloudis has flown through to the Olympic rowing semi-finals as part of the men’s coxless four team. The 24-year-old is part of a team that has been hailed “a boat of legends”, and is said to be shooting for a gold medal in Rio.

At Oxford, Louloudis managed to balance his degree with his Olympic training (he took time out in 2012 to compete and won bronze) well enough to bag a first in Classics from Trinity College.

On top of that, he captained the Oxford Boating Team and won the Oxford Boat Race four times in a row.

Louloudis, who’s mum is a lady-in-waiting for Princess Anne, was only 19 when he won his first boat race in 2011, and was the youngest member of the team at the time.
