Other information
BUTTERFLY FOCUS
He says that butterfly has always been his strongest stroke. "You could say that worked out by itself. At the beginning of swimming classes, we swam in all strokes and after a while we chose the one that suited us best. It turned out that I felt the best in butterfly. Although it is known as the most difficult event, I don't really feel that." (katowice.wyborcza.pl, 22 Nov 2021)
