Kerry Hore started rowing at school in 1997 and was on the World Cup podium for the first time in 2003, winning gold in the women’s quad scull in Lucerne. The crew went on to win the 2003 World Championships in Italy. Hore has since placed on the podium at the World Championships three times winning silver in 2007, 2010 and 2011. At her first Olympic Games - Athens 2004 - Hore and her quad sculls teammates of Rebecca Sattin, Dana Faletic and Amber Bradley, were fourth across the line in the final. After the medals had been presented it was discovered that a member of the third-placed crew, from Ukraine, failed a drugs test and Australia was elevated to the bronze medal position. Hore went on to compete at both the Beijing 2008 and London 2012 Olympic Games in the quad sculls, finishing sixth and fourth respectively. Outside of rowing, Hore works as a pharmacist.
