Biography

Robin Dixon, alongside team mate Tony Nash, won a gold medal at the Innsbruck 1964 Olympic Winter Games in the two-man bobsleigh event. This was the first two-man bob medal Team GB had won in the history of the Olympic Games.

Dixon was in the army at the time of his Olympic success, and had to be granted leave in order to make his Olympic debut. Throughout his career he also won three medals in two-man bobsleigh events at the FIBT World Championships; gold in 1965, and two bronze in 1963 and 1966.

Since retiring from the sport, Dixon has retained intensive links within the sporting industry, and upon the dead of his Father he is now known as The Lord Glentoran, CBE. Dixon has been President of the British Bobsleigh Association since 1987.
