LONDON (AP) — Cambridge will hold a slight weight advantage of about 20 kilograms (44 pounds) in the annual Boat Race against Oxford next month.

The Cambridge crew weighed in Monday at a total of 791.6 kilograms (1,745 pounds), while Oxford came in at 772.6 kilograms (1,703 pounds).

The 160th edition of the race will be held on April 6 on the River Thames.

The heaviest crew member will be Oxford president Malcolm Howard, a Canadian Olympic medalist who weighed 108.2 kilograms (238 pounds).

Cambridge leads the series with 81 victories to Oxford's 77, with one dead heat in 1877.

Oxford won last year's race with a length-and-a-half victory.
