Różnicki, who in 2021 set a personal best and a phenomenal Polish junior record – 1: 44.51, was one of the main candidates for a medal in the August Junior World Championships in Nairobi last season, but he had to withdraw from this start at the last moment. Health problems made him feel pain even while walking. The treatment and the months of treatment brought meager results. In the middle of the year, the runner found himself under the wing of a well-known orthopedist who helped many athletes – Dr. Andrzej Jóźwiak.
– In June, Krzysiek had a second surgery. However, no significant improvement has been seen since then. In any case, he still cannot train. The difference is that now he does not feel pain while walking, but after running, unfortunately, yes – says coach Król.
The Cartusi player was scheduled for another consultation in Warsaw in the coming days. Earlier, he was supposed to do an ultrasound of the diseased foot. Different from now on, he will start studying psychology in Gdańsk and will certainly have much less time to travel around Poland for consultations. From a training point of view, in order to be well prepared for the season, he should start training at full capacity in the next few weeks, but this is not likely to happen yet.
– We are both more and more irritated and tired of the whole situation. Our fight for his health will soon be counted in years, and there is no end in sight. I am more and more afraid that Krzysiek may finally wave his hand at all this and start thinking about his career, but outside of sports – says the coach of the talented middle-distance runner.
This guy does not need to be introduced to volleyball fans. Sebastian Świderski, president of the Polish Volleyball Federation and world runner-up in 2006, meets with Łukasz Kadziewicz before the quarter-final match of the Poles in this year’s championship. What does it tell him about the backstage of the election of Nikola Grbić as the coach of the Polish volleyball team? How does he evaluate his coaching achievements? – Everything depends on the group of people you meet – says Sebastian Świderski “In the Shadow of Sport”. He reveals what people he has met on his professional path, who he calls the biggest “freak”, with whom he has not exchanged a word in the locker room and outside, what he learned from moving to Italy and what the current generation of volleyball players keeps … in the refrigerator.
