Robinson works with some of the
biggest names in swimming, includ-
ing Kaitlin Sandeno, Erik Vendt
and Phelps. But strangely, when he
accepted the job four years ago after
graduating from Adrian College, he
had no swimming experience, had
never seen a swim meet and even
admits he didn't know who Phelps

University Regent, McGowan
recalled the Supreme Court's2003
ruling in favor of the University's
admissions policies - one that
allowed the school to continue
using affirmative action as long as
it wasn't based on a point system.
She also hailed the Board's deci-
sion to add the phrase "gender
identity and expression" to the
a constant reminder of how special it
is to work here and how lucky Iam to
work for Michigan Swimming."
Robinson works all day, even
though his routine starts well
before the crack of dawn. His morn-
ings include preparing Gatorade
and milkshakes for the team, help-
ing with stretches and massages
before practice at 5:15 a.m. and even
performing some electrotherapy.
Through the afternoon, athletes
come to Robinson for physical ther-
apy, and during practices he can be
found strolling the pool deck, mak-
ing sure swimmers are performing
at their best.
Practice ends at 5 p.m., which
means there's still weight training
or dry-land exercises for teams to
go through. Robinson is still avail-
able to help with the team's aches
and pains following workouts.

approved in recent years, citing
the development of the School of

planned $102-million additions to
McGowan's decision to step aside
surprised fellow University Regent
Julia Darlow (D-Ann Arbor).

enough, Robinson has been a train-
er at international swim meets like
the 2007 Pan-American Games in
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At that meet,
Robinson said having a roommate
like Auburn coach David Marsh,
who won a combined 12 NCAA
titles with the Tigers, and talkingto
swimming legends like Gary Hall,
taught him a lot about how he could
work better with swimmers.
"It was a great experience and
you just pick up a wealth of informa-
tion," Robinson said. "I think itreal-

been able to provide the athletes at
After the Olympic trials in July,
Robinson was selected by USA
Swimming to work with the U.S.
Olympic team during its training at
Stanford before departing for Bei-
her all to the job, making it easier
for everyone," Darlow said.
University Regent Larry Deitch
(D-Bingham Farms), who was
elected to the board at the same
time as McGowan, said the two
had teamed up on many proj-
ects, including co-sponsoring the
"gender identity and expression"
amendment and advocating for
the expansion of domestic partner
benefits at the University.
Deitch, the only other member
of the board who is also up for re-
jing. In the future, he aspires to be a
trainer for the U.S. Olympic team at
the 2012 games in London.
While Robinson may train with
several high-profile athletes, his
work remains mostly behind the

coaches," he said. "That's what peo-

important because we have allowed

But sometimes it's not that sim-

Bernard said material is easy

often retained on a server that

Paul Conway, an associate
