Subject: Sarah Tait: Australia's London 2012 rowing medallist dies aged 33

Written By: Philip Eno on 03/03/16 at 4:35 am

Australian rower Sarah Tait, who won silver at the London Olympics in 2012, has died aged 33.

Tait, who picked up a medal alongside Kate Hornsey in the women's pair, was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2013.

Australian Rowing head coach Chris O'Brien said: "Sarah has been, and will continue to be, an inspiration to many Australian rowers.

"She was a strong role model to young athletes, and particularly influential with our emerging female athletes."

Tait and Hornsey finished behind Great Britain's Heather Stanning and Helen Glover in the 2012 pairs final, which was GB's first gold of London 2012.
