Robert enjoys collecting Beatles memorabilia and playing the guitar.

His mother thought he had diving potential and discovered him while he was mucking around in the backyard as a youngster.

In October 1999, he scored seven perfect tens for his reverse three and a half somersault in tuck position.

He represented Australia at Open level before even being chosen in a national junior team.

In May 2001, he was honoured by US Diving when he was awarded the prestigious 'Icarus Award' for his outstanding performance in the 3m Springboard event at the USA Diving Grand Prix. Only two other divers in the world have received this award - Demitry Sautin of Russia and Tian Liang of China.
