He also played for Poland national handball team, winning a silver medal in the World Handball Championship in 2007 and a bronze in 2009. He announced his retirement from the national team on 13 April 2012, following the unsuccessful Olympic campaign of Poland.
On June 11, 2010, Bielecki suffered a severe eye injury during a test match against Croatia. After additional tests and eye surgeries, it was determined that his left eye will remain blind. Although he first said that his years as a player were over, he decided to continue his career - he now plays in special goggles and has scored 11 goals in his Bundesliga debut after the injury.
