The Olympian with a Heart of a Gold. A Polish discus thrower who won a silver medal in the 2016 Summer Olympics, has been the talk of the town even after the eventful event. Piotr Malachowski has done something brilliant with his medal instead of keeping it. He decided to auction it, to raise money for the treatment of a three year old boy, Olek Szymanski, who has retinoblastoma (cancer of the eye).

He received a letter from Olek’s mom who was desperate to seek help for his son’s treatment. Olek has to be taken to New York to receive an efficient treatment.Without any hesitations Malachowski lends his hand.Piotr Małachowski Piotr Małachowski Piotr Małachowski

In his Facebook post he wrote, “In Rio. I fought for the gold. Today I appeal to everyone – let’s fight together about something that is even more precious. The Health of this fantastic boy. So you are all invited to the auction.”

The auction only took a few days and the silver medal has now found a new home. The exact amount wasn’t revealed, but Malachowski said, it was enough to cover Olek’s treatment.
