Sport videos - The Cambridge Pulse

The Cambridge Pulse is a short film celebrating sport in Cambridge, which was premiered at the Cambridge Sporting Celebration Dinner on Saturday 12 May 2012 and launched online on 23 May. We teamed up with the wonderful Cambridge Filmworks to go behind the scenes at Varsity matches, training sessions and sporting events.

Further videos and stories will appear on this page, bringing you game footage, photos from the archives and extended interviews with our scholar-athletes, Olympian alumni and sporting aficionados. You can also follow us on Twitter @CARO1209 #campulse for updates live from Varsity matches such as the Boat Races, and subscribe to the Cambridge Alumni YouTube Channel.
