This is Poland’s 14th medal during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Previously, the white and red team had several places in the top three during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
In the semi-finals on Thursday, the Polish national team presented themselves: Anna Kipasinska, Iga Baumgart-Witan, Mugorzata Hoop Kowalek and Justina Šveti Iricetic. Kiełbasińska missed the medal competition. This time, Natalia Kaczmarek, the 12th contender in the 400m individual semi-final, ran in the first shift.
Natalia Kaczmarek was second only to the change zone – she achieved the same time as American Sidney McLaughlin (50.21). Janieve Russell did not succeed in surpassing Iga Baumgart-Witan, and Małgorzata Hołub increased its supremacy over Jamaica. Justyna Święty-Ersetic also held the second place – in the final in a row she turned out to be faster than Jamaica and Canada. The Americans definitely won (3:16.85). The Polish women won silver medals in a time of 3:20.53 – and in doing so improved the country. Jamaica is third (3:21.24) and Canada is fourth (3:21.84).
