Award for the Paralympian who donated her Medal for child with cancer

Three-time Paralympic champion Ewa Durska has received the World Fair Play Diploma from the International Fair Play Committee (CIFP) at a ceremony in Brussels, Belgium. The Polish shot-putter auctioned off her Rio 2016 gold medal to fund the cancer treatment of nine year old Victoria, a girl from her country. She felt that her medal would be better used to potentially save someone’s life than just staying inside her closet as a piece of memorabilia.

“While being in Rio for the Paralympic Games, I decided that if won a medal, I would do this. I did win it in the end, so I could do my part,” said Durska. “Currently, Victoria is undergoing transplantation. I feel good, and I'm happy to help.
