Kim Crow is an Olympic and World Championship medalist in rowing who has a unique blend of intelligence, eloquence, humility and a keen desire to learn and to share her learnings.
A lawyer and occasional media commentator, Kim has the ability to engage with people on an individual or large group basis. She successfully weaves the themes of determination, preparation, coping with failure and teamwork with humour and humility.
An outstanding youth athlete, Kim had to cope with the burden of quitting her chosen sport of athletics (she was a World Youth silver medalist in the 400m hurdles) as the result of a career debilitating foot injury. In learning about herself through this disappointment, she channeled her determination into recovery and then into her new sport of rowing.
Kim won herself a seat in the Australian women's eight within eight months of starting rowing, and went on to win a World Championships bronze medal that year. She has since raced internationally in all Olympic boat classes, culminating in a silver and bronze medal in the double and single sculls respectively at London 2012. She was the only rower from any country to attempt two rowing events at the London Olympics.
Throughout her dedicated and arduous training regime, Kim has maintained her study and career, achieving a perfect score of 99.95 in her VCE and graduating from her Melbourne University Media and Communications / Law degree with first class honours. She was elected chair of the Australian Olympic Committee Athletes' Commission in 2012, and actively involves herself with various charity initiatives.
A warm and concise speaker, Kim has addressed sport and business groups with outstanding feedback, with well researched tailoring of her presentations to meet the needs of the people with whom she is engaging.
