Description:
Werner Schlager (born September 28, 1972 in Wiener Neustadt, Austria) is a former world champion table tennis player from Austria.

Schlager began playing table tennis when he was six years old, learning from his father and brother who were also top Austrian players, making them ideal training partners. After placing top in numerous singles and doubles tournaments, he won the 2003 Singles World Championship held in Paris beating South Korean Joo Se-Hyuk in the finals to clinch the top spot.

He is therefore the first Austrian since Richard Bergmann in 1937 to win the World Championship Singles. That year, he was voted Austrian Sportsman of the Year and selected in China as "The most popular foreign sportsman".
