Vale – Sarah Tait

3 March; MU Sport


23/1/1983 – 3/3/2016

Olympic rower and Agricultural Science alumna Sarah Tait (nee Outhwaite) has passed away after a long and hard-fought battle with cancer.
 
Sarah was a member of the University’s Elite Athlete Program, originally undertaking  study for a Bachelor of Resource Management after relocating to Melbourne from her native Western Australia. She was a three-time Olympian who was captain of the Australian Rowing team at the 2008 and 2012 Games. Sarah won a silver medal in the women’s Pair at the  London 2012 Olympic Games. She was also a gold, silver and bronze medallist across a number of World Championships. She was also the first mother to row for Australia at the Olympics in 2012, having given birth to daughter Leila in 2009. Son Luca was born in 2013, shortly after Sarah was diagnosed with cervical cancer.
 
Sarah represented the University of Melbourne in rowing and won a swag of medals at multiple national university championships. She was awarded a Full Blue for rowing in both 2008 and 2011. She also stroked the University’s women’s Eight to a comprehensive victory in the 2011 Australian Boat Race on the Yarra. Sarah was also awarded the University’s Lazer-Law Medal for Outstanding Sporting Achievement for her Olympic silver medal in 2012.
 
Melbourne University Sport’s condolences are with the Tait and Outhwaite families, along with Sarah’s rowing friends and fellow elite athletes at the Victorian Institute of Sport and from her days in the University’s Elite Athlete Program.
