Robbie Renwick has been on the team for almost ten years and stood on top of the podium in 2015 with the 4x200m Freestyle Relay team who won gold at the World Championships in Kazan. 

A fifth consecutive appearance with the British team at a World Championships saw Renwick (Scotland) finish in the top spot with the 4x200m Freestyle relay team and become a World champion.

A quiet start to 2014 for Renwick but the summer saw a third selection for a Commonwealth team to represent Scotland in front of a home crowd in Glasgow. He made five finals and helped Scotland to a silver in the 4x200 Freestyle relay.

Renwick claimed 200m and 400m Freestyle gold for the second consecutive British Championship in 2013 before reaching his first individual World Championship final later in the year, finishing sixth over 200m Freestyle in Barcelona.

In 2012, Robbie qualified for a second Olympic Games, competing in three events in London.

After competing at the 2011 World Championships in Shanghai, Renwick finished fourth over 400m Free at the 2012 European Championship in Debrecen.

Having made another World Championship appearance at Rome in 2009, Renwick enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2010, winning his first British title over 400m Freestyle then landing 200m Freestyle gold at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

He made his World Championship debut the in 2007 season in Melbourne before claiming World Short Course bronze over 400m Freestyle in Manchester then reaching the 200m Freestyle final and finishing eighth on his Olympic debut at Beijing 2008.

A silver at the 2005 European Junior Championships, thrust him into the senior fold in 2006, claiming 4x200m Freestyle Relay silver for Scotland at the Commonwealth Games then making his senior European debut in Budapest later in the year.
