Louisville woman to compete in 2012 Paralympic Games druidhills2005 · June 21, 2012 A dream is about to become reality for a Louisville woman who is headed to the 2012 Paralympics in London. Oksana Masters, 23, has a lot of fans in Louisville, who are certain she has the drive, ambition and most of all, the courage to bring a medal back home to the Bluegrass. Taking a boat out has become a full time job for Masters. "We are on the water six out of seven days a week," she said. Her journey began on the mighty Ohio and soon it will move to Dorney Lake in England, the site of all rowing events for the 2012 summer games.
