Esther Momcilovic has been elected as President by CUWBC for the 2013/14 Newton Women’s Boat Race season.
Esther Momcilovic has competed against Oxford twice already, narrowly losing The Newton Women’s Boat Race last year, but coxing the Cambridge Lightweight Women’s crew to victory in 2011. She first learnt to cox at Cambridge University. 24 year old Brit Momcilovic is currently studying for a PhD in the History of Science at Clare College.
Speaking after the announcement, Momcilovic commented, “I feel both excited and privileged to be given the opportunity to lead the CUWBC in the coming year. Our squad are a fantastic group of athletes, and with a strong junior committee behind us we will look to turn the tables on the result from last year, building a firm foundation for our move to the Tideway in 2015.”
The Newton Women’s Boat Race will be raced at Henley on Sunday 30th March 2014.
