Sally Robbins Lives On

with 2 comments

Does anybody remember Sally Robbins? She was the Australian rower who competed as part of the women’s eight at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. She dropped her oar, thus letting down her team-mates who found themselves in position of promise coming into the closing stages of the final.

I think of her often. Especially when I’m watching Mitchell Johnson.

Just waiting for John Howard to wade in.

  1. Dear old ‘Lay Down Sally’ tried to make it as an Olympic cyclist last year but has not got anywhere. Trying to be a flakey version of Rebecca Romero?

    • I can just see her slumped over her handlebars and dropping off the back of the peloton now.
