Peter Zandbergen found rowing when it became apparent to him that football was not going to be a sport he could pursue in college.

“I was a slow obtuse linebacker that ended up, fortunately, being interested in rowing,” the 2015 USRowing Jack Franklin Lifetime Achievement Award winner recalled during an interview prior to be honored at the Golden Oars Awards Dinner. “We started a small program at the University of Nebraska with just a few hardscrabble folks and it was a great opportunity to learn personally about, certainly rowing, but a lot more about life and sharing real things in life.”

Zandbergen’s journey through rowing included collegiate rowing, coaching, time spent on the staff at USRowing involved with the national team and a stint as president of the USRowing Board on Directors and through it all a 40-year career as a USRowing and FISA official.

Listen to how Zandbergen talks about his entry into rowing and all that his total 45-years in the sport has meant to him.
