Roger Black

For 14 years, Roger represented Great Britain at the highest level in the world of athletics, winning 15 major championships, including World Championship gold in 1991.

Though he hung up his running shoes in 1998, Roger has continued to enthral athletics fans as part of the BBC's team.

A passionate and knowledgeable presenter, Roger, 36, is delighted to be bringing viewers all the action from Manchester this July and August.

Portsmouth-born Roger, who is an ambassador for Manchester 2002, believes that the appeal of the Games lies in its history.

"The Games is unique because of the bond of the Commonwealth. It's just steeped in history and that's something that matters."

Roger who is married and has a two-year-old daughter, now runs his own motivational speaking company and, aside from commitments to BBC Sport, is also a presenter on BBC One's popular science show, Tomorrow's World.
