Other information
FROM RZESZOW TO LODZ
After representing club Stal Rzeszow for 20 years, in March 2018 he was forced to move his training base to Lodz because the swimming hall in Rzeszow was in poor condition. "During training in Rzeszow I did approximately 40 jumps [per session] and in Lodz I do 160 jumps during two training sessions, so 80 jumps per session. The difference is huge and it's key to build shape." (rzeszow-news.pl, 07 Jun 2018; 20 Mar 2018; wyborcza.pl, 23 Mar 2018)
