When asked what's it like to be home, Robinson answered, "It's fantastic. It's been a really long journey and there's no place I'd rather be than here in Kentucky."
Among tough competition Robinson was part of a USA team led by driver Nick Cunningham that placed 13th in the two-man bobsled and 12th in the four-man. The National Guard sergeant said the Olympic experience was a dream and the people in Sochi where amazing.
"You know I'm a bobsledder from Kentucky so I didn't know what the support would be like or the interest would be like, but it seemed like a lot of people jumped on board and took a huge interest in what was going on," said Robinson.
"I've never been prouder," said Sandy Hartlage, Robinson's mother, "but I never had a reason not to be. He's a great son."
Dutch Hartlage, Robinson's father, watched each of his son's races live on the internet.
"Even getting up at 4 o'clock in the morning to watch him running it's been a blast," said Dutch Hartlage, "he gives good ride."
"From Lexington Christian Academy to Oldham County High to Georgetown and Berea College a lot of times I forget the breadcrumbs that I've laid," said Robinson. "I'm a coach and a friend to them and they were on board for the ride I hope it's because I love them and they love me, I wouldn't be here if it weren't for them."
Robinson added, "I've been down and out so many times and all of them, so many people have picked me up, and that's all the people that have been here rooting on me."
