National team[edit]

In 2009, he won a gold medal in the European Championship. He began his career as an outside hitter, but the coach of Polish national team at the time, Andrea Anastasi, persuaded him to change his position on the court to wing-spiker. On September 14, 2009 he was awarded The Order of Polonia Restituta.[3] The Order was conferred on the following day by the Prime Minister of Poland, Donald Tusk. With the Polish national team, he won two medals in 2011: silver at World Cup[4] and bronze at World League,[5] where during the Poland - Bulgaria match, he was injured. For this reason, he did not participate in European Championship, where his teammates won bronze medal. He is a gold medalist of World League 2012 in Sofia, Bulgaria.[6][7] In addition, he received an award for Best Spiker.

For his sporting achievements, he received:

  • 2009 Ribbon Bachelor Polonia Restituta
