A talented athlete in her early teens, Anneliese Rubie took a short break before returning to the sport aged 20. In her junior years, she had already made the semi-finals at the world juniors (2010), World University Games (2011) and competed at the senior world championships (2011).

In 2013, Anneliese joined Morgan Mitchell (in 2014) to lead a resurgence in women’s 400m and 4x400m running in Australia. At the 2014 Commonwealth Games, they placed fourth, then in April 2015 secured an Olympic relay position at the IAAF World Relays in the Bahamas. Individually, she made the semis at the Commonwealth Games and 2015 world championships. Selected for Rio, she delivered a magnificent campaign. Advancing to the 400m semi-final, she was a key member of the 4x400m relay team that placed eighth in the final.

After dabbling with the 800 metres over the last few years, Anneliese returned to the event fulltime in 2017. She raced on nine occasions domestically and placed second at Nationals. It was not until she travelled to the USA in May she set a PB of 2:02.18. She ran for the national 4x400m relay team at two major meets in 2017. In April she assisted the team to be fifth at the World Relays and in August with the team that placed fifth in the heats at the World Championships.

For a tilt at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, she refocused on the 400m and led the national rankings all summer, starting with 52.17 in December. At the NSW Championships she just held off 17-year-old Bendere Oboya for the title and in the national championships, it was a similar finish with Rubie clocking 51.92 – her equal second fastest time matching what she had run in her heat at the Rio Olympics.
