Her seventh place at the World Orienteering Championships in Finland in 1979 is still one of Britain's highest individual placings at this level. She has won a gold medal four times at the World Veteran Championships and is one of few British competitors to have had class wins at the renowned Swedish Five Days. Carol received an MBE for her services to the sport and now lives in the Lake District where she continues to be fully involved in the sport.
