Robin Clegg

Name: Robin Cleggrobin_clegg_2009

Sport: Biathlon

Hometown: Ottawa, ON

Favorite Sports Memory:
Starting my first Olympic race in Salt Lake City (2002)

Favorite Quote:
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.
– Vince Lombardi

CAN Fund Testimonial:
The immense cost to represent Canada internationally, and ultimately the Olympics can be prohibitive to many. The generousity of the CAN Fund has enabled me to become an Olympian by allowing me to continue to train at the highest possible level. I would not be here today if it weren’t for them!

Best Result:
3rd CISM World Championships, Roviemi Finland
8th, World Cup – Pokljuka, Slovenia
15 time National Champion

Fun Facts:
Although Biathlon is a winter sport, I really don’t like the cold. I grew up in Yellowknife, NWT and endured many -50C winter days, and as a result have frozen numerous body parts repeatedly. Given the chance, I think I would rather live on a tropical beach – and trade my skis for a surfboard!
