Intro

Frankie’s first rowing experience was aged 12, in a single called “Tinkerbelle” in Henley-On-Thames on a very long rope held by her uncle

From there she went on to row at Pangbourne College and later continued her rowing development at Oxford Brookes University alongside studying for her Physiotherapy BSc. During this time Frankie discovered that her disability, Erb’s palsy, was classifiable for Paralympic rowing. Shortly after starting University, Frankie trialled for the GB Para Rowing Team and was selected for the PR3 mixed coxed four for the 2022 season.

In her first season on the team Frankie achieved incredible success at the World Rowing Championships 2022 becoming double World Champion in the PR3 mixed coxed four and PR3 women’s pair, making Frankie the first woman in the sports history, alongside her rowing partner Giedre Rakauskite, to win two championship titles in one regatta. Frankie has continued to push the PR3 mixed coxed four to new heights by becoming a world record holder alongside her crew at the World Rowing Cup II 2023 and later that year defending her title at the 2023 World Rowing Championships.
