Frank was a two time Olympian and won a gold medal in the marathon at the 1972 Munich Olympics while also placing 5th in the 10,000m. Then 4 years later, Frank won a silver medal in the marathon at the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Frank also won the U.S national cross country championships four times (1970 - 1973), was the U.S Olympic Trials champion at 10,000m and the marathon in both 1972 and 1976, won both the 10,000m and the marathon at the 1971 Pan American Games and was a four time winner of the prestigious Fukuoka marathon (1971 - 1974).
