Clint Robinson

Kayaking (January 1999)

Without doubt, Clint is one of the true megastars of the Sunshine Coast sport. By the age of 12, Clint has represented Queensland in both rugby league and surf lifesaving. In 1998, he became Australia's most successful surf lifesaving star with an incredible 24 gold medals at national championships.

The gold medal K1000m Kayak race at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic left Australians on the edge of their seats and gave birth to a national hero. Clint backed up this performance with a bronze medal in the 1996 Olympics Games in Atlanta.
