Frazier Christie is a graduate of the GB Rowing Team Start programme. He developed his talent whilst at university in Bath, and in 2015 was selected for the GB U23 M4x.
Along with Tom Barras – who is also new to the GB Rowing Team senior squad this year – Andy Brown and Andy Joel, Frazier Christie qualified the quad for the A/B semi-final at the U23 World Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, but sadly the crew were forced to withdraw from the competition due to illness.
Upon graduating from university, Frazier moved to Leander Club to train full-time. In 2016 he reached the final of the Prince of Wales Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta, and was invited to join the GB Rowing Team at Caversham a few months later: ‘I’m enjoying the challenging environment and being one of the youngest members of the team, which I really think brings the best out of me.’

Beyond the Boat
After training Frazier busies himself by tutoring maths and physics, and running a little online business; he hopes to be his own boss after rowing, possibly working in the tech industry. When he does find time to relax he is partial to a film and a pizza –Remember the Titans in which Denzel Washington plays an inspirational high school football coach is a firm favourite.
Frazier’s parents currently live in Nairobi, where his dad serves in the British Army, and he loves visiting them there. He is one of two sets of twins in his family.
Frazier admits that he is not in charge of training music – ‘that’s Moe Sbihi’s job usually’, but he is a fan of Epic Sax Guy. His sporting idol is David Beckham whom he admires for his incredible career and national treasure status – ‘I’m not sure there’s anyone out there who wouldn’t want to be him’.
