Caroline was a pupil at Bell Baxter High School and started her sporting career as a swimmer with Cupar and District Swimming Club.

Like so many other Scots her first representative honour came as a member of the Scottish Junior team that competed in the British Swimming Championships. Her first major representative honour was as a member of the Scottish Youth Team that travelled to the World Games in Miami in 1989. She excelled at that event as a sprinter. Her first Paralympic selection was Barcelona in 1992 and she returned with a gold medal.

Further honours and medals followed in Atlanta and Sydney. She also won gold at the World Championships in Berlin in ’94 and Birmingham in ’98. For over a decade Caroline was recognised as the world’s leading sprinter in the T36 Class. She raised the standard considerably in her class under the guidance of coach John Oulton.

Caroline was inducted into the Scottish Disability Sport and Scottish Athletics Halls of Fame.
