    This is probably one of the most powerful photos i took at the Head of the River last weekend.

    This Year 9 crew caught a crab and the oar snapped. After finishing the race, the boy in front turned around and hugged his teammate. It’s okay

    I honestly was so moved by this and i think it really shows the commitment and importance of teamwork in a sport like rowing. It’s all about support and braving conditions together, both the good and the bad. 

    I think it’s beautiful.

    It’s okay.
