MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — WCCO has been putting its twist on the Olympics with the Anchor Olympics.
However, Amelia Santaniello was out sick on Tuesday, so Frank Vascellaro was put through the paces on his own by Minneapolis Rowing Club’s Ann Schley.
While a boat full of students rowed past on the Mississippi, he started with the basics, down on the dock. Club President Mark Johnson showed support from the back of the boat and the two started to move.
And after a nice ride, Frank tried out the single scull, which usually takes a couple weeks to master.
But then he made a big mistake, right in front of those other rowers – capsizing.
