Polish Olympic hero auctions off her Tokyo silver medal for £130,000 to help fund life-saving heart surgery for an 8-month old boy she's never met



Polish Olympic athlete, Maria Andrejczyk has auctioned off her silver medal from Tokyo to help fund life-saving heart surgery for an eight-month-old boy.


The javelin thrower beat bone cancer after being diagnosed in 2018 and went on to win a silver medal at the Games in Japan following a fourth-place finish at Rio 2016.







In a bid to put her success to good use, she's auctioning off her medal to help a stranger in need. She has started a fundraiser for Miloszek, a young Polish boy who requires heart surgery at Stanford hospital in the United States.
