CAREER
Marcel Hug reclaimed the AbbottWMM Series crown when he stormed to five wins in six races in 2021 to take the title back from American Daniel Romanchuk.

The man known as the Silver Bullet was almost unstoppable from the moment he began his Paralympic campaign in Tokyo. Hug swept four gold medals, including the marathon title he already owned from Rio in 2016.
