Wojciech Zabłocki (photo), an outstanding Polish fencer and architect, four-time Olympian, three-time Olympic medallist in the sabre team (two silvers, one bronze), died at the age of 90, on 5 December 2020. For Geraint John, “the world has lost an architect of unique abilities. He was a ‘Renaissance’ man, who was gifted with many talents: a sportsman who achieved the highest results in his chosen sport, a writer of ability and a distinguished architect. Wojciech was also awarded the Pierre de Coubertin Medal by the IOC. During his architectural career, he designed many sports facilities, including projects in Latakia, Katowice, and Konin. He was the designer of the Academy of Physical Education and the National Velodrome, both in Warsaw. He was also a member of the International Union of Architects (UIA) Sports and Leisure Programme and was made a Member of Honour”. More info here at the Polish Olympic Committee website.
