  • Polanik’s exceptional equipment to feature at Silesia 2023

The countdown is almost complete for the Silesia 2023 European Athletics Team Championships which starts on Tuesday (20), with the Old Continent’s most important team competition held as part of the third European Games.

For the third time in a row, Poland is the host, and, for the first time ever, all three divisions will converge on the same location, the Śląski Stadium (Silesian Stadium).

As well as the European Athletics Team Championships, the stadium will host a Diamond League meeting next month and is also set to be the main venue for the 2028 European Athletics Championships.

Fittingly, the stadium also comes fully equipped with top-quality equipment from a Polish manufacturer – Polanik.

Ziolkowski Hammer Black

In total, it takes around 1500 different pieces of equipment to run a complete athletics event and Polanik’s versatile range of products means it will be ever-present around the field of play at the Śląski Stadium this week, from throwing cages and landing areas, to high jump and pole vault stands, hurdles, electronics and markers.

Polanik’s throwing equipment is also chosen for training and competition by some of the world’s best athletes - and Poland has no shortage of superstars in this area. Thanks to cooperation with outstanding Polish athletes, the company has been able to create products which are a combination of many years of experience and expert knowledge from masters of their events.

For example, Polanik developed the Gold and Pink Hammer by Anita Włodarczyk by working directly with the world record holder and three-time Olympic champion, while fellow Olympic champion Szymon Ziółkowski also shared his expertise during the development of the Ziolkowski Hammer.

The initiator of creating the shot Old School was none other than double Olympic champion Tomasz Majewski and thanks to collaboration with world champion Piotr Małachowski, Polanik’s product range includes the Malachowski Discus.
