Karine-Thomas_600Karine Thomas is the lone holdover from the 2012 Olympic synchro team that narrowly missed the podium in London, finishing fourth. After competing at the world junior championships in 2006, Thomas joined the national team in 2007 and made her debut at the FINA World Championships that year. She helped the team to fourth place finishes at the next two world championships. She was also a member of the team that won gold at the 2011 Pan Am Games. After a lot of turnover on the national team post-London 2012, Thomas began competing in the duet competition in 2013.
