This Robert Lewandowski really surprised us! Two days before the start of the Sports Champions Gala (broadcast in Polsat, coverage on Onet and on przesladsportowy.pl) we asked the Bayern striker to indicate who he would vote for. “Lewy” selected the top three. I must admit that his selection is really original and does not coincide with how the journalists of various editorial offices voted a few days ago, which we wrote about HERE.
Last year’s winner of the “PS” Plebiscite indicated that for him the Polish athlete of 2021 was Dawid Tomala. Let us remind you that this athlete won the Olympic gold medal in an amazing style at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, competing in 50 km walk. The athlete from Tychy, just like all of us, did not expect that he could even join the fight for medals, let alone reach for the most valuable album, putting the competition far behind. – I’m in shock. I decided to heat up to the maximum over the distance, because then a lot is happening on the route. This was my chance – said Tomal at the finish line. In an interview with us, he also revealed what his preparations for the start looked like.
– I live in a room with Artur Brzozowski, who also went great, because he was 12. We were sitting yesterday until 22.00, although we got up after 2.00 at night, because the start was at 5.30. We laughed that we had nothing prepared. We left everything at the last minute. In the evening we made drinks. Yes, spontaneously. We got four hours of sleep and went on the route – he laughed at the finish line.

In further places, Lewandowski placed our mixed relay (composed of: Karol Zalewski, Natalia Kaczmarek, Justyna Święty-Ersetic, Kajetan Duszyński, Dariusz Kowaluk, Iga Baumgart-Witan, Małgorzata Hołub-Kowalik), which in an extremely spectacular way reached for the gold of the Olympics in Tokyo. Anita Włodarczyk was on the lowest step of the podium for Lewandowski, and she also won the disc made of the most valuable metal, for the third time in her career. Himself, the captain of the Polish national football team, omitted, in accordance with an unwritten custom.
