Radosław "Radek" Kwietniewski has long planned a trip to the IFA World Armwrestling Championships in United States - Orlando, Florida, September 15. Radek started collecting funds for the trip online.
However, due to the current situation related to the epidemic - he decided to allocate the funds to help the Clinical Hospital for Children in Zabrze.
On his profile he says:
"My name is Radek Kwietniewski, last year I won the World Armwrestling title (gold medal in the right hand fight and silver medal in the left hand).
During the competition in Rumia, I had the opportunity to face my rivals, incl. from Canada and Slovakia. This is my biggest sports success (so far, among others, the title of Polish Champion and 5th place at the World Championships in Malaysia and the runner-up in the world of professionals for left and right hand), although no bigger than winning in the fight for health.
At the age of 14 I was hit by a car. When I lay in a coma for several months, the doctors gave me a 6% chance of survival. It wasn't sure if I would ever wake up, and even if - if I could walk and talk. After years of rehabilitation, I was able to stand on my own legs and return to sport. "
