History of the Rob Derbyshire Trophy

John Henry ‘Rob’ Derbyshire competed at four consecutive Olympic Games in 1900, 1906, 1908 and 1912.

He won a gold medal with the British water polo team at the 1900 Olympics in Paris before 4x250m Freestyle Relay bronze at the 1906 Games in Athens and 4x200m Freestyle Relay gold two years later in London.

In 1921, Derbyshire helped found the Penguin Swimming Club, which is now known as West London Penguin Swimming and Water Polo Club.

The Rob Derbyshire Trophy was presented to the ASA by his wife Alice.
