  • Career Highlights: Karsten-Khodotovich will be 40 years old when the London Games start, but the sculling great said her sixth Olympic appearance will likely not be her last, as she is “probably” going to keep rowing through the 2016 Games. Karsten-Khodotovich, who started rowing when she was 15, made her Olympic debut for the Unified Team in 1992, earning a bronze medal in the quadruple sculls. In 1996, she won Belarus’ first-ever Olympic gold medal when she finished first in the single sculls. She repeated in 2000 when a photo finish against Bulgaria’s Rumyana Neykova was ruled in her favor. Karsten-Khodotovich, the 2006 World Rowing female rower of the year, is a six-time world champion in single sculls and a three-time runner-up. She was edged out by the Czech Republic’s Mirka Knapkova by four-hundredths of a second last year. Karsten-Khodotovich, a married mother of one, nearly quit the sport after her daughter’s birth in 1998.
