Felix Streng

He is 27 years old and a Paralympic track and field athlete in the 100m sprint, 200m sprint, long jump and 4x100m relay. In 1995 he was born in La Paz without his right lower leg. He grew up in Bolivia, England and a small village in Germany. At the age of 16, he decided to move to attend the elite school of sports of TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen to complete his baccalaureate. In addition to school, he trained daily in his new sport – track and field. In the meantime, he can already look back on 16 medals at Paralympics, World and European Championships.

Last year at the Paralympics in Tokyo, he fulfilled his dream – gold over the supreme discipline of the 100m.

In the future, he would like to achieve more titles and records. His focus is always on the „Ability“ and not the (supposed) „Disability“. For example, he trains in a group of top athletes in London with his coach Steve Fudge, where it doesn’t matter whether someone wears a prosthesis or not. The focus here is on top-level sport, continuous development and performance.

We are happy to welcome Felix as a speaker on our stage and are very excited about what he will tell!
