Robert KORZENIOWSKI 略歴
Robert Korzeniowski is the most successful race walker at the Olympics, with four titles. In 1996, 2000 and 2004, he won the 50 kilometres event, making him the only person to have won a race walking event more than twice. He also became the first person to win both the 20 and 50 km competitions, even doing so at the same Olympics, in 2000. Primarily a 50 km specialist, Korzeniowski won that event three times at the World Championships (1997, 2001 and 2003) and twice at the European Championships (1998 and 2002). Korzeniowski retired after his 2004 Olympics, in which his sister Sylwia also competed as a race walker, though with less success than her brother.
Personal Bests: 20kmW – 1-18:22 (2000); 50kmW – 3-36:03 (2003).
