Biography

Caroline Leonhardt won two Olympic canoeing medals, winning gold in the K-4 and silver in the K-2 in 2004. She has also won six World Championships in flatwater canoeing, and has six titles at the European Championships. She would probably have won gold in the 2008 Olympic K-4 but became quite sick only a few days before the competition, and was replaced by Conny Waßmuth, and Leonhardt was forced to leave the Olympic Village due to doctor’s orders. Professionally she is a police woman in education, but she is currently preparing for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
