Biography

Robin Cousins, alongside Vancouver 2010 Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams, is an official Team GB Ambassador for 2014.

A former British Figure Skater, Robin Cousins  won his first national title in 1969 at the age of just twelve . By the age of fourteen, he was the British junior champion, making his international debut later on in the same year.

His debut at the Olympic Games came in 1976, Innsbruck, where he finished 10th. Four years later, he won the gold medal at the Lake Placid Games in 1980. Cousins' victory marked the second of the three year consecutive gold medal dominance of Team GB in Figure Skating Events (John Curry 1976 prior and Torvill and Dean 1984 post).

The three time World Championships medallist also played a crucial part in the lead up to the London 2012 Olympics, working closely with the synchronised swimming team.
