Polish athlete auctions Olympic silver medal for 8-month-old's heart surgery

  • A supermarket chain won the auction by placing a bid of $125,000
  • Maria Andrejczyk won women's javelin throw silver medal at Tokyo

In a heartfelt gesture, Poland's Maria Andrejczyk has auctioned her Olympic silver medal to help raise funds for an eight-month-old boy who needed a heart surgery in the USA.

On Monday, Andrejczyk announced that a supermarket chain, Zabka, won the auction by placing a bid of USD 125,000. In another post on Facebook, Zabka revealed that the medal will stay with the 25-year-old Olympian from Poland.

Andrejczyk had missed out on a medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics by a whisker but won the silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics with a best attempt of 64.61m in the women's javelin throw final on August 6.
