Wlazly claims ‘Giant of the XXI Century’ title in fun online contest run by Polsat
Miscellaneous

Luxembourg, May 16, 2020. Mariusz Wlazly emerged as the eventual winner of the ‘Giants of the XXI century’ contest run by Polsat Sport, defeating Michal Winiarski in the final. The online competition to choose the best Polish Volleyball player of the last 20 years lasted for a week.

Polsat ran this contest following the example set by Italian newspaper ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, which asked fans to help choose and identify the best basketball player in NBA history.

Polsat shortlisted 16 players for a series of exciting head-to-heads in some sort of a tennis bracket:


•    Mariusz Wlazły vs Marcin Możdżonek
•    Michał Winiarski vs Łukasz Żygadło
•    Paweł Zagumny vs Piotr Gacek
•    Bartosz Kurek vs Krzysztof Ignaczak
•    Piotr Gruszka vs Dawid Murek
•    Michał Kubiak vs Daniel Pliński
•    Piotr Nowakowski vs Sebastian Świderski
•    Paweł Zatorski vs Fabian Drzyzga

After very close early rounds, the top four made it to the semis, where Wlazly clearly beat Kurek in a clash featuring the Most Valuable Players of the 2014 and 2018 World Championships. The other semi-final was a much closer affair, with Winiarski edging former teammate Zagumny by 26 votes only.

The final featured Wlazly and Winiarski and it was yet another close call, with Wlazly securing 51.9% of the votes cast by fans online to secure the title of ‘Giant of the XXI Century’.
