Three Bears Compete at World Championships

Aug. 22, 2006

All three former Cal rowers competing at the World Rowing Championships in Eton, Great Britain, were in action Tuesday.

Scott Frandsen, representing Canada in the eights, helped his boat to a third-place finish in its heat. They led through the first 1500 meters of the race, but couldn't hold onto on of the top two spots to advance to the semifinals. Instead, the Canadians will have to qualify through the repechage. New Zealand won the event in 5:50.93, followed by Germany in 5:51.34 and Canada in 5:52.54.

In the doubles repechage, Nitto Simensen was second for Norway and will go to the semifinal round. Bulgaria won the race in 6:17.29, followed by Norway in 6:19.36.

Marko Marjanovic rowed pairs in an exhibition race for Serbia and took fourth in 7:07.85. In the tight race, the top five boats were separated by less than three seconds. The U.S. won the event in 7:05.51.
