- This year's victory tastes especially good. Becoming a champion is extremely difficult, but even more difficult - to stand on the top place of the podium again. Our team managed to do this thanks to the great determination of the players and coaches and the favor of the authorities of the Gdańsk University of Technology - says Krzysztof Kaszuba, Director of the Academic Sports Center of the Gdańsk University of Technology after the announcement of the final results. - Once again, "versatility" turned out to be the key to our victory. We are the only university in Poland that was represented in all 48 disciplines. We don't know what next year will bring, but we certainly won't get beaten easily - he adds.
After the crazy, autumn edition of AMP 2019/20, this year's edition of the Polish Academic Championships was calmer, although it did not take place without breaks and rescheduling. Although the coronavirus epidemic still does not give up, our players have proved that in the most difficult circumstances they can rise to the occasion and give their best in every tournament and every competition.
Of course, apart from the above-mentioned successes in the general category, our representatives won a number of medals in the category of Technical Universities.
Congratulations to all players and coaches who contributed to this success.
Now it's time for a moment to rest and after the holidays we are back to hard training to fight for the defense of the championship title in the new academic year!
