Sławomir Majusiak (born 30 May 1964) is a Polish former long-distance runner who competed mainly in track running. His greatest achievement was a 5000 metres bronze medal at the 1990 European Athletics Championships.[1] He also represented Poland at the 1989 IAAF World Cross Country Championships and 1991 World Championships in Athletics.[2]

Born in Jarocin, as a young athlete he was a 3000 metres bronze medallist at the 1983 European Athletics Junior Championships, becoming the first Pole to reach the podium in that event.[3] He won the 5000 m at the European Cup B Final.[4]

Despite his international success, he only won one title in his career at the Polish Athletics Championships, topping the podium in the 10,000 metres in 1990.[5] He was also the winner at the Polish Cross Country Championships in 1989 and 1990.[6]

He trained with fellow Polish European medallist Bogusław Mamiński, with a focus on the fartlek method. He retired before the age of thirty due to poor mental health. After athletics he went into business, working at a drinks company with his brothers before moving into real estate.[7]
