In 2014 Colin was nominated for GBC Sports Personality of the Year 2013 for being a double medalist in the Bermuda Island Games 2013 and another Endurance swim win in the summer 2014.[1] His unprecedented achievements in swimming in Gibraltar was recognized when he went on to win this award. In 2016, his 21 year long swimming career was celebrated by the Gibraltar Chronicle [2] where Colin explained that Gibraltar Amateur Swimming Association (GASA) is more than just a pool for him, admitting this is where he made lifelong relationships and how his involvement in GASA has shaped the person he is today. Colin received praise from all areas of the sporting community, such as a local triathlete stating that 'In one of the toughest sports he is an outstanding role model for any swimmer to follow and I am sure his records will be tough to beat'.

Colin is also the only Gibraltarian to qualify for 5 Commonwealth Games in his discipline. The 5th Commonwealth Games he qualified for was the 2018 Gold Coast games, where he had to drop out with very short notice due to the imminent birth of his son.
