PS Plebiscite: Anita Włodarczyk is the Best Athlete of the Year according to sports editorials

During last year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo, Włodarczyk, winning her third championship title, threw the hammer 1 meter and 45 centimeters further than the Chinese woman Wang Zheng. Maintaining an appropriate frame of reference, it can be said that in the traditional journalists’ vote organized by Przegląd Sportowy she was better than one of the best footballers in the world, Robert Lewandowski, by several centimeters. A huge crowd on the virtual third place on the podium, because there must be enough space for as many as seven athletes competing at the Olympic Games in the 4×400 m mixed relay. The order was arranged by awarding points for individual positions in the editorial selection – from 10 points for the first to 1 for the tenth.

26 Polish sports editorials took part in the game of selecting their candidates in our plebiscite. As many as 19 of them placed Lewandowski at the head. The Bayern Munich forward has garnered many awards in recent weeks for his 2021 shooting performance, and even became the best athlete in the World Sports Press Association (AIPS) poll. In spite of so many editors who put on him in our journalistic vote, he had to give way to Włodarczyk, among others because one of the lists does not contain it at all.

In addition to Lewandowski, Włodarczyk and the mixed relay race, the top five include the other two Polish gold medalists from Tokyo, i.e. the thief Wojciech Nowicki and the sensational 50 km walk winner Dawid Tomala. Apart from the Olympians and Lewandowski, only the tennis player Hubert Hurkacz made it to the top ten. However, several nominees in the plebiscite – Malwina Kopron, Paweł Fajdek and Tadeusz Michalik, as well as the four canoeists (including bronze medalists of the Olympic Games) – did not receive a single point. However, Karolina Naja and Anna Puławska, members of the two, were swimming in it, so maybe their double success was of importance to those voting only for them or even for Naja herself. In addition to the nominees in the plebiscite, points were awarded to the Paralympic champion Róża Kozakowska and the world’s leading chess player Jan-Krzysztof Duda.
