David CalderPlease note: the information below is accurate as of the London 2012 Olympic Games and will be updated in advance of the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games and Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

A rowing veteran on the international scene, David Calder competed in his fourth consecutive Olympic Games in 2012. Calder and partner Scott Frandsen finished in sixth place in the men’s coxless pairs event in London.

Calder is the 2008 Olympic silver medallist in the coxless pairs with partner Frandsen. In 2004 in Athens, his Games ended when his oar accidentally clashed with a South African oar in the men’s pair semifinal, resulting in disqualification. In the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, he competed in qualifying action.

Calder has won three World Championship medals: gold in 2003 in the men’s eight, gold in the men’s pair at the 1996 World Junior Championships, and bronze in the men’s four at the 1994 World Junior Championships in Germany (his first international competition.)

Calder, from Victoria, B.C., retired for three years after the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens to raise his young family and concentrate on his communications job with the B.C. Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources.
