After a distinguished rowing career Carol switched sports, to cycling, with a plan to make the London 2012 Paralympic team. In London years of toil paid off. Carol won a gold medal in the Mixed Time Trial T1–2 event.

Since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Carol has dedicated her working life to raising awareness and funds for MS.
