Sławomir Wolniak (born January 23, 1988) is a National Record holding swimmer from Poland who specializes in the breaststroke. He is a four-time Polish national champion, having captured the 50m and 100m breaststrokes in 2007, and the 100m and 200m breaststroke in 2009.[1]

He is a member of Poland's swim team for the 2009 World Championships, in Rome, Italy at the end to July.[2]

He swam for Poland at the 2007 World Championships in Melbourne, Australia in the 100 m and 200 m breaststrokes. He did not advance out of the preliminaries in either, finishing 29th in the 100 and 17th in the 200—just missing advancing in the 200 by 0.04 seconds.

National records[edit]

Wolniak set the Polish Records in the 50m, 100, and 200m breaststrokes at the 2009 Polish Nationals (50m) in Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski, Poland, May 21–24.[3] Ironically, Wolniak's record-setting effort in the 50 breast, came in the consolation final, as he failed to qualify for the “A” final.
