An outstanding performance of Polish athletes. They defended the title of European Athletics Team Champions!
In the period of 29-30 of May 2021, a few Polish athletes were missing during European Athletics Team Championships Silesia 2021. Because of that, White – Reds weren't favourites for gold. However, Polish team beat all rivals and defended the title which had been won 2 years ago.
After the first day of competition, Polish team was placed on the second place with only a loss of half a point to British. German, Italian, French and Portuguese teams were behind our team.
Among the representatives of Poland, finals were won by: Pia Skrzyszowska in 100 m run, Natalia Kaczmarek - 400 m, Alicja Konieczek - 3000 m steeplechase run, Norbert Kobielski who was the best in high jump and Michał Haratyk who was second to none in shot put event.
