  • Robin Campbell

    I never realized she was my age:

    She was so advanced. Brooks Johnson used to bring her to work out at our school in the mid-70's. She still holds nat'l records in the 600y and 600M (I know, they don't run 'em any more), and is on the all-time list in the 800M:

      Funny, I posted this:

      Robin Campbell-Bennett (b. January 25, 1959) was a U.S. Olympian at 800 meters in 1980 and 1984. She competed in every Olympic Trials between 1972 and 1984.

      At the 1980 Liberty Bell Classic, she won the silver medal at 800 meters, running 2:02.53, finishing between Yvonne Mondesire of Canada (CAN) 2:02.34 and Ann Mackie-Morelli of Canada (CAN) 2:02.63.

      Her best 800 meter time of 1:59 came in 1983 in the World Championships in Helsinki, Finland, where she finished fifth.

      At the Olympic Trials in 1972, at age 13, she won the Exhibition Races for girls 14 and under at both 200 meters and 1500 meters. Her times were fast enough to make the U.S. Olympic team, but she was too young to qualify.

      Campbell won U.S. Indoor Championships at 400 meters and 1500 meters. She finished second at eight consecutive U.S. Indoor Championships at 800 meters.

      On April 25-27, 1975, at Mount San Antonio College (Mt. SAC) Relays in California, she won both the 400 meters in 53.5 and the 800 meters in 2:11.6.[1]

      She was born in Washington D.C. [2] and now resides there, where she heads Fifth Man Track Athletic Club. [3] She attended Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville, Florida; University of Florida, Gainesville; and San Jose State College in San Jose, California, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in liberal studies and a minor in women's studies. She served on the Drug Testing Committee, Cultural Exchange Committee, and Youth Sports Committee of USA Track & Field. [4] She is active in the Olympic Alumni Association, Women's Sports Foundation, Stop the Silence: Stop Childhood Sexual Abuse, [5] and Potomac Valley Track Club [6]

        I think that what happened was that by putting the space between Campbell and (athlete), without an underscore, you broke the link. Clicking on what you originally posted gets you to a Robin Campbell article not related to the one you meant to link to.
