Former Oxford rowing coach and Oxford Blue Daniel Topolski passed away aged 69

Posted on: February 23rd, 2015

The OUBC learnt over the weekend, with heavy heart, of the passing of Daniel Topolski.  He had fought for good health on and off for a number of years with the same indomitable spirit that led him to many a victory on the river both as oarsman and the architect, as Head Coach, of a record series of Boat Race victories for Oxford over rivals, Cambridge in the 70s and 80s.  His legacy is woven into the OUBC today from those victories and his continuing deep involvement with the Club and the many athletes who have had the privilege of knowing him.  Everyone at Oxford University Sport has Daniel and his wife, Suzy, his children, Emma, Tamsin and Luke and his sister, Teresa, in their thoughts and prayers.
