Malwina Kopron and Małgorzata Hołub-Kowalik, students of the Faculty of Law and Administration of UMCS, will have a great opportunity in a few days - a chance for the medal of the XXXII Summer Olympic Games Tokyo 2020!

The 26-year-old hammer thrower from Puławy - Malwina Kopron will be the second Olympic Games in their career. She made her debut in Rio de Janeiro. Then she went to university. Now the situation is completely different. As she admits, in Japan, she can fight for a medal!

- This year, I can confidently say that I am going to fight for a medal! I hope that the years of experience that have passed since the start in Rio will pay off in the capital of Japan. The form is stable, the power boost remains, and I hope that the life throw will come out during the Olympic finals. I am healthy, well prepared: mentally and physically. I believe that I can add 2-3 meters to the 75-meter result I have achieved so often this season. I know that a few players throw further away from me, but as I said, I am going well prepared. I can take up the glove and fight for a medal - announced Malwina Kopron in an interview with Polish Radio Lublin.
