WARSAW, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Justyna Kowalczyk brought Poland Olympic gold medal in cross country skiing classical 10 km despite her broken foot, which she damaged during a training session several weeks ago before the opening of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.
Her victory was widely celebrated in Poland, including in the town where she was born.
“She is just warming up,” said one of the celebrating fans from her town. “She will definitely win a medal in 30 km race.”
This was the second gold medal for Poland at the current Olympics, which run between February 7 and 23. The first gold was grabbed by Polish ski jumper Kamil Stoch.
According to Sochi2014.com official website, Kowalczyk began skiing at the age of 15. She was involved in various sports at the same time, but a year after taking up cross-country skiing she promised her coach that if she won the Polish junior championship she would start taking skiing seriously. Six months later she won her first national junior gold medal and since then she has focused exclusively on skiing.
