    The Australian rower retired from the sport in 2014 as she battled cancer.

    Tait won silver at the Olympic Games in 2012 alongside Kate Hornsey in the women’s pair.

    A statement on behalf of the family on Rowing Australia’s website read: ‘The Tait and Outhwaite families are sad to inform of the peaceful passing of Sarah Tait after a long and hard-fought battle with cancer.

    ‘Bill, Leila, Luca and the wider Tait and Outhwaite families continue to be grateful for the support and love that has been shared with Sarah and them through this difficult time.

    ‘The families are enormously proud of the positive impact Sarah has made on so many throughout her life, and know she will be dearly missed.’

    Australian Rowing head coach Chris O’Brien said: ‘Sarah has been, and will continue to be, an inspiration to many Australian rowers. She was a strong role model to many young athletes but was particularly influential with our emerging female athletes.

    ‘Sarah was one of rowing’s most successful and impressive female athletes who has left a permanent mark on our sport.’

    She was a three-time Olympian, competing in the women’s eights at Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008.

    She was coached by her husband Bill, and at the London Games she was the first mother to row for Australia at the Olympic Games following the birth of their first child, Leila, in 2009.

    The AOC said Tait was diagnosed with cancer following the birth of her second child, Luca, in March 2013.y

    Damn...cervical cancer. They tell women it's a slow, non-aggressive cancer, but a lot of people lately have died from it....what gives?

    There's 2 kinds of cervical cancer; adenocarcinoma which is harder to detect and squamous cell. From there, there's "sub-cancers" invasive carcinoma and carcinoma in situ. In situ usually affects younger women (25-35) while invasive usually strikes older women (45-50) The risk factors are the same but there are some that raise the stakes higher- women with multiple pregnancies, smokers, compromised immune systems, etc. In situ left, untreated can, turn invasive in as little as 2 years. If you're diagnosed before stage 3 you have about 60% chance of 5 year survival, stage 3 it's around 35% 5 year survival and stage 4 is about 15%.

    Sadly, a lot of PAPs are believed to be read incorrectly by Pathology, taken wrong by the physician, etc. Often what is deemed normal actually isn't. False negative is around 20% and about half of that is attributed to faulty sampling techniques.
