Biography:

Two-time Olympian Douglas Vandor competed in the men’s lightweight double sculls with partner Morgan Jarvis at the London 2012 Games and finished second in the men’s C final to finish 14th overall.

In his first Olympic appearance at Beijing 2008, Vandor competed in the lightweight double sculls with Cameron Sylvester. A strong heat qualified them directly to the semifinals, but along the way Vandor contracted a viral infection that made him quite ill. They finished last in the semi and Vandor was unable to compete in the B Final, instead replaced by alternate John Sasi. Vandor had previously been an alternate for the lightweight four at Athens 2004.

Vandor is a two-time world championship bronze medallist (2002 in the lightweight four, 2005 in the lightweight quad sculls).

A former speed skater, Vandor started rowing at McGill University where he graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science, and in 2002 with a Master’s degree in Physiology.
