The Paralympic Games end on 5 September. So it’s time to summarize. Polish athletes won 25 discs. This may seem like a solid result, but as history shows – these are the fewest medals won since we started at this event!
The Paralympic Games in Tokyo got off to a great start for the Polish team. Already on the second day of the competition On the second day of the competition, the first medal for Poland was won by track cyclists Marcin Polak and his co-driver Michał Ładosz. A few hours later, the silver was added to the bronze disc by Adrian Castro in the individual tournament of group B mountaineers.
We didn’t have to wait long for the first gold either, because the next day we could enjoy Mazurek Dąbrowski on Japanese soil. Róża Kozakowska won the competition in the club throw (F32) and broke the world record with a result of 28.74 m. Kozakowska became in a way a showcase for Polish athletes during the Paralympic Games. A few days later she won a silver medal – this time in the shot put. In one start she broke two world records, but Anasasiia Moskalenko was even better than her.
