Philippe Adamski (born 8 April 1985)[1] is a French orienteering competitor. He's member of the French club Tous Azimuts Douai since his beginning. He's also running for Kalevan Rasti, Finland.

He started orienteering lately, when he was 17, despite some practice at school. But he reached high level quickly and took part to his first junior world championships in Estonia one year later (2003). Poland's JWOC showed animpressive progression with 2 top 15 places.

At JWOC 2005 in Switzerland, he gained his first medals with silver in the middle distance and bronze in the long distance. Then it was time to show his skills in the senior class.

He won silver in the World University Orienteering Champs in Slovakia (Kosice, 2006). The same year, he was for the first time in the first team of the senior relay, at the world cup in Montlosier (France, disq)

He competed at the 2009 World Orienteering Championships in Miskolc, where he participated on the French relay team.[2] He won a silver medal in the long distance, and a silver medal in the relay with the French team at the 2010 European Orienteering Championships in Primorsko.[3]

For the 3rd time in a row, he was unlucky with the WOC relay when his teammate, Thierry Gueorgiou, in the lead, forgot a control, and loost the title.
