Timothy D Robinson

Coach - Dev 2

Email


Tim is joining us as a coach for the Development 2 squad for the 2017/2018 season, having been a member of the Club since the age of 4.

Still an active swimmer in the club, his days of serious competitive swimming are over but he has a wealth of knowledge to bring to the young swimmers.

Tim’s achievements in swimming are many. Notably, he was top boy in the Bagcats at Surrey Counties for 3 consecutive years, on one occasion achieving 13 golds. In addition, he won top boy at London Regionals several times. He represented London at International Open Meets (Geneva and Barcelona) and was selected over many years for the ‘England Talent’ group.

One of Tim's greatest achievements was coming third at the British open water nationals in 2013. He also competed at the 2012 Olympic trials for 1500 m freestyle. Having recently finished a Sport and Exercise Science degree at the University of Bath, he hopes to put his knowledge into practice by helping all of the swimmers in the club, from pre-development to national level in areas such as nutrition, injuries and performance.
