Our beneficiary Rafał Fedaczyński was selected to the national team for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The roster was officially announced yesterday.
Until yesterday, we could only hope. Now we know for sure that our beneficiary, racewalker Rafał Fedaczyński, has earned his third trip to the Olympics. 8 years ago, in Beijing, he placed eighth. What happens now? We'll see in three weeks.
Rafał is going to compete in a 50 km walk race. Over the last four years, Rafal struggled with very serious health problems but he has not given up. He changed his training system and eliminated problems with technique. He also changed the sports club he belonged to for AZS UMCS Lublin.
The past four years were full of hard work, with thousands of kilometers covered. All this time, Rafał has been supported by his coach Stanisław Marmur and performance mentor Leszek Dyja.
Rafał ensures that he will do his best and try hard in Rio, in Flamengo Park, during the race - 110%. Fingers crossed.
