Olympian Piotr Malachowski sells medal to pay for 3-year-old’s cancer treatment

New Delhi: The Polish discus thrower Piotr Malachowski, who won silver at the recently concluded Rio Olympics, auctioned his medal in an effort to save a 3-year-old boy with a rare form of cancer.

The 33-year-old Polish discus thrower announced on his Facebook account that he has got an offer from the richest couple in Poland.

"Dominic and Sebastian Kulczyk just declared their willingness to buy my silver medal for the amount which enables (me) to complete the collection," Malachowski wrote on Facebook. "We were able to show that together we can make miracles."

Piotr Malachowski was reportedly looking for about $84,000 for a boy named Olek Szymanski for his cancer treatment.

Malachowski said his silver medal was worth a lot more than a week ago and now it is worth the health of little Olek.

"My silver medal is worth a lot more than a week ago. It is worth the health of little Olek."

Piotr Malachowski won his second silver medal earlier this month after defeating Germany's Christoph Harting.
