Robin is a Canadian pole vaulter and Olympic hopeful.

Her first love was gymnastics but she had to give it up after suffering multiple concussions.

She then took up the pole vault instead and wears a helmet when she vaults to protect her from future concussions.

And in 2013, she represented Canada at the 2013 Summer Universiade in Kazan, Russia

Robin has had quite the career since transitioning from gymnastics to pole vaulting at the age of 16.

According to her website, she’s a “four-time Canadian National Team member, captured gold at the Canadian Youth National Championships, gold at Canadian Junior Championships.

Three-time OUA Gold medalist and two-time CIS National gold medalist after breaking the CIS National Record with a jump of 4.36m.”
