RUNNER ROBBIE FITZGIBBON

Phoenix Athletics Club star Robbie, 22, began competing for Britain after being crowned English Schools 1500m champion in 2014 and has won silver and bronze at European events.

Despite contracting a virus at the start of the season which kept him off the track for a while, Robbie Fitzgibbon still managed to chalk up a personal best time of 3:39.3 for 1500m in 2018. He also improved his 800m and 3000m times and made it to the 1500m final of the British Championships.


Robbie has recently been training with Andy Butchart and credits the Scottish record holder, along with Olympian Mo Farrah, for showing him what it takes to make it at this elite level of athletics.

Next year Robbie is going to be trained by former 5000m Commonwealth champion and British Athletics endurance programme coach, Rob Denmark, as he bids to up his distance.


Robbie’s goal is to make Team GB for the 2019 World Athletics Championships in Doha next autumn, but his first target is to compete over 3000m at the European Indoor Championships in March.

Robbie is just one of the inspirational young athletes being helped by Caesars Foundation, the charitable arm of Caesars Entertainment, to fulfil their potential and bring Olympic and Paralympic medals home to Britain.

Since 1976, SportsAid has helped many of nation's most successful sportsmen and women, including Chris Hoy, Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Ellie Simmonds and Bradley Wiggins.
