A three-time Olympian, Scott Frandsen is in his second season as an assistant coach on the California men's rowing staff. An accomplished rower with more than a decade of experience, Frandsen works with Teti in all aspects of the program.
A native of Kelowna British Columbia, Canada, Frandsen is one of Canada's most highly-regarded Olympians. He competed in his third Olympic games this past summer in London, rowing in the coxless pair with teammate Dave Calder. He and Calder earned a Silver Medal in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Frandsen also competed in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, where he helped the men's eight to a fifth-place finish.
Frandsen has also excelled as a competitor in various boats at five World Championships with top-10 finishes in each event. In nine World Cup Regattas from 2004-08, he captured two Gold Medals, one Silver Medal and two Bronze Medals and recorded top-five finishes in the remaining four events. Frandsen also took home a Gold Medal in 2001 and a Silver Medal in 2002 at the Under-23 World Championships in Austria and Geneva, respectively. While completing his Masters degree at Oxford University, Frandsen was in the Blue Boat that won the tightly contested 2003 Oxford/Cambridge Boat Race.
Frandsen was a standout at California where he was part of three-straight Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) championship men's eight boats from 2000-02. The Golden Bear captain also guided Cal to the three-straight Pac-10 titles in the men's eight and was honored as a First Team All-Pac-10 selection as a senior in 2002.
While at Cal, he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration at the highly-regarded Haas School of Business in 2002, before earning his Masters at Oxford in 2003.
