At 12 he and three of his teammates broke the National Record for the 200 Medley Relay, and broke Pacific Swimming records in the 200 Free, 400 Free, and 400 Medley Relays as well. He swam for Pioneer High School, qualifying for CCS all four years, and for West Valley Jr. College placing 4th in the 200 Butterfly at State Championships in both 1989 and 1990.

Bob began his coaching career in 1992 and has held Assistant and Head Coach positions here in the Bay Area and in Washington where he most recently was head coach for Barracuda Swimming.
