Who Was Irena Szewinska?

The event’s namesake, Irena Szewinska, grew up in the Polish track & field spotlight, excelling in short-distance running events and the long jump. She went on to claim a handful of world records and seven Olympic medals (in five trips), including three gold (1964, 1968, 1976).

Perhaps that description doesn’t do her success justice. She is actually the only athlete in history to have set world records in 100, 200 and 400 meters.

After her days of competing concluded, Szewinska stayed active behind the scenes in Polish and European athletics, including a stint on the International Olympic Committee. 

Szewinska died in 2018 after a battle with cancer. She was 72. 

About Zdzisław Krzyszkowiak Stadium

Zdzisław Krzyszkowiak Stadium is a multi-purpose venue in Bydgoszcz, Poland, that has room for more than 20,000 spectators. It’s used primarily for soccer and track & field events.

The facility, named after another standout Polish track and field star, officially opened in 1960 with a capacity of nearly double the current number, but it simply wasn’t as comfortable. It was completely rebuilt between 2007 and 2008.
