Michael Robertson has wanted to compete for Team Canada since being the national U17 champion in the 200m and 400m. He had that dream come true at the 2011 Pan Am Games where he was a member of the 4x400m relay team. He achieved another career highlight at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow where he got to race against 2012 Olympic 400m champion Kirani James when they were placed in the same heat. As a late addition to the 2013 Summer Universiade team, Robertson helped the 4x400m relay squad win silver. Robertson won 400m silver at the 2014 Canadian Championships after winning bronze in 2013.
