Carol Brown had never rowed before she joined the first women’s crew team at Princeton University in 1971. Three years later, she made the U.S. National Team at the World Championships, where she and her teammates raced to a fifth-place finish, the first U.S. women’s boat to reach a world championships final. At the 1975 World Rowing Championships, Brown won a silver medal with the women’s eight. In 1976, Brown was a crew member of the American boat that won an Olympic bronze medal in the eight event, the first time women's rowing was on the Olympic program. She went on to win a gold medal at the Royal Henley Regatta in 1981 in the coxed fours, the first time women had raced at Henley. Brown has received numerous national rowing awards and was inducted into the US Rowing Hall of Fame in 1991 and again in 2016. She is currently a Vice President, US Olympians and Paralympians Association, the USOC athlete alumni organization.

Here Carol talks about how she mentors others through the life lessons she learned from rowing:

During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called Dr Osebor on how he cured her from HIV Virus. And she also gave the email address of this man and advise anybody to contact Dr Osebor for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help, so I emailed him on ( oseborwinbacktemple@gmail.com ) telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as Dr Osebor assured me that i will be cured,after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact Dr Osebor via email. { oseborwinbacktemple@gmail.com }or call or what sapp him on( +2348073245515 )
