ROGER BLACK MBE
For 14 years Roger represented Great Britain at the highest level in the world of athletics, both as an individual 400 metre runner and as a member of the 4×400 metre relay team.
He won 15 major championship medals including European, Commonwealth and World Championship Gold medals. His greatest achievement was winning the Olympic 400 metre silver medal in 1996 and he is particularly admired for his triumph over adversity, successfully overcoming several serious injuries and setbacks throughout his career.
Roger is one of those unique people who has achieved both individually and as part of a team. He understands the dynamics of becoming a champion – how to dream a dream, set goals and take the necessary steps to fulfilling one’s potential. By combining his close understanding of motivation both on and off the track he consistently inspires, motivates and entertains audiences throughout the country and is also a popular television personality. He has been Men’s Team Captain for Great Britain and in 1992 was awarded with an MBE.
Since 2008 Roger and Steve have been working together, enabling individuals and organisations to gain knowledge of what drives sporting success, translating it into real-life, day-to-day activities that can be acquired by anyone with the will to commit.
