14 medals at the Tokyo Olympics
At the Olympic Games in Tokyo there were 211 female and male competitors, who won 14 medals, including four gold, five silver and bronze medals. The Olympic champions in the hammer throw were Anita Włodarczyk – for the third time – and Wojciech Nowicki, the mixed relay in the 4×400 meters run and Dawid Tomala in the 50 km walk. It gave the white-and-red 17th place in the medal table, and the last time they brought so many medals from the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000, although they stood on the highest step of the podium six times there.
