"How he doesn't like roller coasters and he doesn't like cold and he doesn't like heights and yet, that's also his heart and his passion, not only is he a great athlete," said Elder. "He loves the athletes he works with."
Monday night dozens of Georgetown Tigers gathered to cheer on one of their own. Every time the push athlete showed up on the screen his supporters back home made it known.
"You know you could tell," said Georgetown track coach Todd McDaniel. "Alright that's Dallas. That's big Dallas there. It was fun to watch."
"It makes you proud to be from Kentucky," said Howe.
They're proud of a role model, who is constantly inspiring young athletes on and off the track.
"He gives all the glory to God and I try to do that all the time, too," said Howe. "He's just a great guy, good coach and everything."
After four runs, Robinson and pilot Nick Cunningham finished 13th.
"He's worked so hard and I'm just happy to see that he made it to the Olympics, that's a great accomplishment in itself," said DeAndre Pitts, Georgetown track coach.
