She is one of 32 athletes the Isle of Man will be taking to Queensland. Their squad also includes cycling star Mark Cavendish and former Plymouth College and Plymouth Leander swimmer Charlotte Atkinson.

Breaststroke specialist Robinson may only be 18 but will be competing at her second Commonwealth Games, having made her debut as a 14 year-old at Glasgow in 2014.
