National Ski Team Background:
In his 15 years of competing at the National Ski Championship, Robin is an 11-time able-bodied national champion. After representing Canada at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games, Robin began guiding his brother Brian at IPC competitions around the world. The McKeever duo won three gold medals at the 2010 Paralympics. The brother tandem have racked up seven gold, two silver and one bronze medal in three trips to the Paralympics in addition to dozens of World Championship and World Cup medals.
 
Following their golden sweep of the podium in cross-country ski events in 2010, Cross Country Canada named Robin as the new Para-Nordic Ski Coach. Robin has played a key role in developing and working on technique with all team members on the Para-Nordic squad since 2008.
 
Robin will continue to guide his brother Brian, while leading a group of six medal-targeted athletes that will compete in World Cup and World Championship competitions this season.
