A Polish discus thrower has sold his silver medal from the Rio 2016 Olympics to help a three-year-old boy with eye cancer.
 
波兰一名铁饼运动员网上拍卖自己的2016里约奥运银牌,帮助一名3岁儿童治疗眼癌。  

 
"I did everything in my power to get it (a glod medal). Unfortunately, this time it didn't work. But fate gave me a chance to increase the value of my 'Silver'," wrote Piotr Malachowski on Facebook.
 
He appealed for raising money for Olek Szymanski, who is suffering a rare cancer that only attacks kids under five years old.
 
The athlete launched an auction1 on www.charytatywni.allegro2.pl, a website helping3 non-government organizations to collect money for their charity goals.
 
The aim of the auction is to raise funds to send little Szymanski for teatment in the United States because Poland lacks the relevant technology. It's reported that an eye operation for the boy costs over 125,000 U.S. dollars.
 
On Aug. 24, Malachowski, who also won a silver medal in Beijing in 2008, wrote on Facebook that the charitable drive had been a success, saying Dominika and Sebastian Kulczyk, the heirs of late Polish billionaire Jan Kulczyk, bought his medal with the highest bid.
 
"We are able to show that together we can make miracles. My sliver4 medal today is worth much more than a week ago ... This is a big success," he said in the note.
