Kim Brennan (nee Crow) started rowing in 2005 throughout the University Games and Victorian Institute of Sport Talent Transfer program. Before rowing she had finished second to Jana Pittman in the 400m hurdles at the Australian Athletics Championships before injury halted her promising athletics career. She combined with Sarah Cook in the women’s pair in 2007 and they showed great potential, winning gold and bronze medals at the 2007 World Cups and finishing fourth at the World Championships. They were selected in the women’s pair at the Beijing Olympic Games and placed 10th. At the London 2012 Olympics, Brennan achieved a rare feat of competing in two separate events at the same Games - and winning medals in both. Alongside Brooke Pratley in the double sculls she won silver and then went on to take bronze in the single sculls. Outside of rowing, Brennan is a lawyer and is also Chair of the Australian Olympic Committee’s Athletes’ Commission. Brennan's father, Max Crow, played over 200 AFL/VFL Games for Essendon, St Kilda, and Footscray. In 2016, Brennan was once again named in the Women's Single Sculls.
