US media pen stories about 'sewage-infused' River Thames

The River Thames in Britain has become a laughing stock in America after the 2024 Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge was marred by high levels of E.coli in the water. Thames Water leaked raw sewage from two nearby sewage overflows for around six hours between them on Friday. American news outlets such as Fox News, CNN, CBS, and the New York Times published articles about the race's build-up for the first time. Crew members were given safety guidance to avoid swallowing any water that splashed up from the Thames. Oxford rower Leonard Jenkins blamed the pollution in the river for their defeat to Cambridge.
