Meet Roger

Making his mark on the international Paralympic stage, Roger Habsch proved himself to be a formidable competitor at The Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, returning home adorned with two bronze medals from the 100m and 200m events. These achievements solidified his reputation as one of Belgium’s top athletes in his field.

But Roger was not one to rest on past glories. In May 2023, he pushed the boundaries of what’s achievable even further by shattering the world record for the 100m wheelchair race in the T51 class at the Daniela Jutzeler Memorial held in Arbon, Switzerland. He won a Gold at the T51 200m and a Silver at the T51 100m events at the 2023 World Para Championships. His record breaking run served not only as a testament to his unstoppable determination but also as an inspiration to athletes worldwide.

Every time Roger takes to the track, it’s a display of strength, resilience and an unwavering will to succeed. His incredible journey serves as a reminder to us all that true champions are not defined by the number of medals they win, but by the spirit they demonstrate in their pursuit of excellence.
