From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Markus Antonius Rogan (born May 4, 1982 in Vienna) is an Austrian swimmer, who won two silver medals at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece and a gold medal for 200m backstroke at the 2008 World Championships in Manchester. He also is the world record holder in 200m backstroke.

Rogan's first big international success was a second place finish in the 200m Backstroke at the 2001 World Championships in Fukuoka, Japan.

In the Olympics in 2004, Rogan placed second in both Men's 100 m Backstroke and the Men's 200 m Backstroke, both times behind Aaron Peirsol of the United States. The 200 meter race was controversial as Peirsol was first disqualified but later reinstated as gold medalist.

The 6' 5" tall Rogan swam for Stanford University from 2000-2004. On December 8, 2005, in Trieste, he set the new world record in the 200 m backstroke for short course swim pools, with 1:50.43. This world record has since been broken by American swimmer Ryan Lochte, who lowered the standard to 1:49.05 at the 2006 FINA Short Course World Championships in Shanghai, China. Back on the Short Course in Manchester 2008, Rogan broke the world record again setting the new record with 1:47,84.
