Ep. 323 - Roger Black

Roger Black is the former athlete who represented Great Britain at the highest level, both as an individual 400m runner and as a member of the 4x400m relay team. He won 15 major Championship medals including World, European and Commonwealth Gold medals and Silver and Bronze Olympic medals. Roger was also British Men's Team Captain. His greatest achievement, he says, was winning the Olympic 400m silver medal in 1996 in Atlanta, beaten by the great Michael Johnson. Since his retirement from Athletics he has worked as a motivational speaker, talking to people all around the world about the many similarities between high performance in the worlds of sport and business. Roger was awarded an M.B.E. in 1992 .


Roger Black is guest number 323 on My Time Capsule and chats to Michael Fenton Stevens about the five things he'd like to put in a time capsule; four he’d like to preserve and one he’d like to bury and never have to think about again .
