The 1.80 m tall Rebecca Sattin from the Swan River Rowing Club in Perth won the silver medal at the (unofficial) U23 World Championships in 1999 with the four-man without helmsman , and in 2000 she took sixth place in the same boat class. The following year she won the eighth title at the World Championships in Lucerne in front of the boats from Romania and Germany. At the 2002 World Championships , Kristina Larsen , Jodi Winter , Rebecca Sattin and Victoria Roberts from last year's eighth also rowed in the four without a helmsman and won the final two seconds ahead of the Canadians. All the rowers of the four-man were also in the eighth, who fought a close race with the German boat behind the US eighth. At the finish line, the Australians had a lead of nine hundredths of a second to win the silver medal. At the 2003 World Championships , the Australian eighth was fourth and missed the medal positions by one and a half seconds. In 2004, Sattin switched to the double foursome . In the cast of Dana Faletic , Rebecca Sattin, Kerry Hore and Amber Bradley , the boat reached the A-final at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens . In the final, the Australians crossed the finish line in fourth place, 42 hundredths of a second behind third. Due to the later doping disqualification of the Ukrainian Olena Olefirenko , the Australians subsequently won the bronze medal.
