Kamila was a terrific athlete and left us too soon. We miss you...

Kamila Skolimowska was a Polish hammer thrower. She was known for her Olympic gold medal in Sydney 2000, which made her the youngest Olympic hammer champion, as well as for her two medals from the European Championships. Her personal best throw, and Polish record, was 76.83 metres, achieved in May 2007 in Doha.
She was born in Warsaw. Skolimowska first made herself known at age fifteen, when she won the hammer throw event at the 1997 European Junior Championships; the first time hammer throw was staged at the European Junior Championships. She was actually fourteen years and 264 days at the time, and had become Polish national champion and record holder the year before. Her personal best in 1997 was 63.48 metres. She improved her personal best to 66.62 metres in 1999. She also finished seventh at the 1998 European Championships, won the 1999 World Youth Championships and finished twenty-first at the 1999 World Championships. She died on 18 February 2009 in Vila Real de Santo António during Polish national team training camp.
