Australian rower Sarah Tait, who won a silver medal at the London Olympics in 2012, has died at age 33. She became the first mother to row for Australia at an Olympic Games. Tait 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 women's pair partner Kate Hornsey finished behind Britain's Heather Stanning and Helen Glover in the 2012 pairs final, which was Britain's first gold of London 2012.
