Robinson re-commits with Vixens

3 years ago

The Melbourne Vixens have announced that Madi Robinson has signed a two-year contract that will see her remain a Vixen until at least the conclusion of the 2017 ANZ Championship season.

Robinson suffered a season-ending knee injury in Round 6 of the 2015 ANZ Championship season, rupturing her anterior cruciate ligament.

Maintaining high spirits in the wake of the season ending injury, Robinson’s recovery has been a testament to her strength of character.

“Madi has been extremely focused and determined in the 3 months since her knee reconstruction and is already up and running," said Melbourne Vixens head coach Simone McKinnis.

“I’m really pleased with Madi’s recovery so far and we're confident she's on track to be hitting the court with team mates for the start of the 2016 season.”

The 27-year-old is looking forward to getting back into the competitive arena in 2016.

“Everyone has been really supportive throughout my recovery and I can’t wait to get back out there with the girls next season.”

“I believe we will have a strong team next year and know that, with the support of our members, we will be a contender in 2016,” said Robinson.

Beginning her ANZ Championship career with the Melbourne Vixens in 2008, Robinson moved to Perth in 2009 and played with the West Coast Fever for two years.

The Geelong local returned to Melbourne and the Vixens in 2011, and has been a starting seven player for the Victorian side. Robinson sits with 95 ANZ Championship games and 44 international Test caps to her name, and won the Liz Ellis Diamond for a second time in 2014.
