Biography

Belgian sprinter Romain Poté won the Belgian title in the 200 m in 1961, and also competed at a national level in the long jump. At the 1959 World University Games, he took a bronze in the 100 m sprint, and represented his country at the 1960 Olympics in Rome. After completing his criminology studies, he worked for the paramilitary police, and eventually became a traffic expert. He published regularly on the subject, and was known in Flanders as the spokesman of the Advisory Bureau for Traffic and Mobility (ABVM), often appearing on television to comment on traffic issues. He also worked at the traffic desk of the Flemish Radio and Television (VRT). His son, Kris, followed in his father's footsteps by winning the Belgian 200 m title in 1982.
