The Atlanta Hustle are excited to announce our signing of Dr. Robert Runner. Robert’s most recent bout with competitive ultimate was with local elite club team, Atlanta Chain Lightning Ultimate. He played with Chain from 2009-2012, including winning club nationals in 2009 and placing 4th at Worlds in 2010.
Prior to Chain, Robert attended club nationals with two separate mixed teams, Axis of C’ville and Guillermo Y Compania. Robert started his ultimate career at University of Virginia, including a trip to College Nationals in 2009 in which Robert was team captain. This same season, Robert finished 5th in the overall voting for the Callahan Award, college ultimate’s most prestigious individual player award. Befitting a medical doctor, Robert described his style of play as “cool, calm and collected.” Welcome to the team!
