Robyn often teams up with Sharon Crawford on Rogaines (including the Worlds). I first met her in Colorado or Wyoming, I think, at one of the Rocky Mountain meets. :-)

Or... I may be confusing two Robin/Robyns. [Glen pointed out that there's an Aussie, Robin Spriggs, and she is be the one Sharon does Rogaines with.]

Ah yes- that rings a bell- might have met her at WMOC 2009 (likely introduced by Sharon)
Anyhow, Aussies have a habit of getting around- 3 members of Team USA at recent WMAC were part of that diaspora!

Robyn is Liz Abbott's (WA's first WOC rep) sister. She was here visiting their Mum recently. I suspect that she's not Sharon's rogaine partner.

I know Liz by name but don't recall her during my time in OAWA - wasn't she mostly based East Coast?
Robyn was a contemporary at UWA and yes not Sharon's Rogaine partner!
And (self-serving) Trivia quiz- who was first WA rep on National Training Squad? :-)

Liz ran WOC in France '87 under the name Elisabeth Kessell. Later she separated from her husband and ran in '89 under her maiden name Abbott.

You were chatting to Robyn Rennie (Vancouver - GVOC) at the Metro Event you came to when you were in Perth for the athletics
