Melbourne Vixens Captain Madi Robinson has rounded out her sensational 2016 season by being crowned the winner of the Sharelle McMahon Medal at the RACV Club in Melbourne tonight.

The 28-year-old shone in the final year of the ANZ Championship and in addition to taking home the Club’s top accolade, was named the overall Australian Conference MVP and also earnt a place in the Australian Diamonds team.

An incredible feat for any athlete, Robinson’s achievements are made even more impressive after she missed most of season 2015 with a ruptured ACL.

Robinson was named Melbourne Vixens Captain for their 2016 campaign and had a dominant performance in the midcourt where she topped the Australian leader board for goal assists and centre pass receives.

“I’m really pleased for her,” said Head Coach Simone McKinnis of Robinson, who also won the Sharelle McMahon Medal in 2013.

“To come back into the competition the way she did after such a serious injury and to play the way she did I thought was outstanding.

“It did take her some time to get her game back and to get her feel back, which wasn’t surprising, but once she got going she was fantastic and that was really pleasing to see.”
