The Winklevosses To Face Cambridge

The Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge is known for its brothers, even twins, sitting in the same boat, or fighting each other, one rowing for the dark blues and the other one rowing for the light blues. In the race tomorrow, the two Americans Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss are both rowing for Oxford. In the rowing world they might be known as Olympians who placed sixth in the pairs in Beijing in 2008. For the non-rowers they might even be more famous as the twins who sued Facebook. Read here an article about the brothers and their involvement in an upcoming film this autumn, The Social Network, about the founding of Facebook, but there will also be some rowing in the movie, of course.
