Piotr MALACHOWSKI - Poland - Silver medal at Rio Olympic Games for World discus champion.

2015 World champion Piotr Małachowski had to settle for second best at the 2016 Olympic Games

when Christoph Harting unleashed a personal best throw to snatch the title, on his last attempt.

Piotr, with his last throw and the last of the competition,  was unable to respond.
