Biography

Karin Brienesse excelled in the 100 m freestyle, qualifying for three consecutive Olympic finals in that event. Her only individual international medal also came in that event, winning a silver medal at the 1991 Europeans. As a member of the 4 x 100 m freestyle team, Brienesse collected several more medals. A fabulous last lap at the Seoul Games earned the Dutch a silver medal, and Brienesse led the Dutch to a shock victory over Germany at the 1991 European Championships. The Dutch squad with Brienesse also took bronze at the 1986 and 1991 World Championships, and at the 1991 Europeans in the two other relay events.
