For fourteen 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 4x400 metre relay team, winning fifteen 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 triumphs over adversity, successfully overcoming several serious injuries and set backs throughout his career. 

Roger has been British Men's Team Captain and was awarded the M.B.E. in 1992.

Roger engages the audience with lessons learnt throughout his athletics career, which resulted in him achieving his dream of standing on the Olympic rostrum in Atlanta in 1996.


His talk includes a selection of Olympic images and archive race footage of the Gold Medal Winning 1991 World Championships 4x400m Relay. Audience members can also reflect and learn from the performance lessons of Team GB, who delivered on the greatest stage of all, the London 2012 Olympic Games, coming third on the medal table and four years later, improved their performance to come second on the medal table at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
