PERSONAL: Julian ROBINSON (JAM) (, 9 Jun 2016)


Tears in the ACL and MCL knee ligaments sidelined him for seven months just as his career as a senior-level competitor was beginning to unfold, with talk of him being a favorite at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. (, 9 Jun 2016)

Reason: Got his start when Calabra High School coach, Julian ROBINSON (JAM), came to talk to his older brother and suggested that Fedrick come along to training. (, 9 Jun 2016)
Memorable: Made history as the first Jamaican to win the 2011 world U18 meet and the 2012 world U20 meet. (, 9 Jun 2016)
Additional information

Rather than going to school abroad after high school, decided to go the University of the West Indies instead to be close to coach, Julian ROBINSON. "He is a listener and is very understanding. He is also a technician when it comes to throws and never stops trying to learn more." (, 9 Jun 2016)
