Bayano Kamani from "Robot Combat League" is the robo-jockey for Team Steel Cyclone in the Syfy competition series. His teammate is robo-tech Dr. George Kirkman. Kamani is an Olympic athlete and coach who lives in Oakland, California. He is originally from Houston, Texas.

If there's one thing Bayano Kamani knows, it's competition. The Houston-raised athlete is a two-time Olympian — he represented Panama at the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympic Games — and the current South America 400 meter hurdles record holder. At Baylor University, he was a four-time NCAA Champion and a 12-time NCAA All-American athlete. Nowadays, Bayano coaches teens at an Oakland high school and is a literary junkie. He's a huge fan of robotics and doesn't let anything stand in his way when there's a prize on the line — that's when the fierce competitor comes out.
