James_RobinsonWith the start of the 2014 Olympic games in Sochi, Russia, it is nice to remember that the Peralta Colleges had their own Olympian. In 1974, Laney student James Robinson was the second best half mile runner in the United States. Robinson also ran for McClymonds High School in Oakland and University of California at Berkeley. He competed in the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada.
