Robin-RandallRobin Randall has been around the men’s national team program longer than anyone else currently on the squad. He joined the youth national team in 1995 before advancing to the junior national team in 1997. He was part of the senior national team for the first time from 1999 to 2003 before leaving for two years to teach English in South Korea after a disagreement with the former head coach. While there, he went to see former teammates competing at the Universiade, reigniting his passion for the game. With a new head coach in place, he returned to the national team in 2005 and never looked back. He was a key figure in Canada qualifying for Beijing 2008, the first time the men’s water polo team had officially qualified for the Olympic Games after being substitutes at the boycotted Los Angeles 1984 and being given host nation entry at Montreal 1976. Randall is also a two-time Pan Am Games medallist from Rio 2007 and Guadalajara 2011.
