Zoe de Toledo shares her extraordinary experiences of coxing at the highest levels, and her love of studying at Oxford in this podcast.

She describes her part in the thrilling race that led to the GB women’s eight coming second in last year’s Olympics in Rio. The Olympian was also the cox during the dramatic Boat Race of 2012, when a swimmer disrupted the contest between Oxford and Cambridge on the Tideway. De Toledo continues by talking about Oxford’s academic strengths and why she continues to study here. She is now reading Medicine at Harris Manchester College – her third degree at Oxford. She previously completed Master’s degrees in Psychological Research, and Criminology and Criminal Justice when she studied at St Catherine’s College.
