Richard Browne

World Champion Sprinter, Paralympian, and Team Össur athlete Richard Browne is no stranger to success. The 2012 Paralympic Silver Medalist in the 200m, Richard currently holds 3 World Records in the 60m, 100m and 200m -- the latter two which he set during the IPC World Championships in Doha in 2015. 

Richard became a below-knee amputee in 2010 following a tragic accident the prior year, and began running as part of his rehabilitation.  Today, running on his Flex-Foot Cheetah Xtreme®, Richard is one of the field’s top athletes, regularly competing against able-bodied runners.
