Paweł Fajdek boasted about the great news on his social media. At the same time, the athlete broke the record held by Robert Lewandowski. He did it after fourteen years.
Polish athletes often decide to go to university or finish their studies during their careers because they interrupted them due to their professions. Knowing that fame does not last forever, and one injury can change an athlete’s life 180 degrees and require him to look for a new career path, which is definitely helped by education.
Robert Lewandowski has so far been the university’s record holder
Many stars decided to study at the University of Sport Education, which – as the rector’s office informed some time ago – provides forms of education without the need to attend classes, although many athletes decide to attend them.
At WSEWS they studied, among others: Anita Włodarczyk, and e.g. Adam Małysz graduated from sports high school. Often, for professional reasons, athletes have to take dean’s leave, which meant that the current university record holder was Robert Lewandowski, who in 2017, after 10 years, wrote and defended his bachelor’s thesis about himself under the title: “RL9. The Road to Fame.”
Paweł Fajdek broke Robert Lewandowski’s record
The captain of the Polish national team, Lewandowski received three A’s in his studies, submitted work and final exam and graduated with honors. The FC Barcelona striker held the record for the most years of study until 2023.
Finally, Paweł Fajdek can boast of a longer internship, as he announced on his Instagram that he had defended his bachelor’s degree after 14 years.
“The previous record of the University of Education in Sport for first-cycle studies, which belonged to Robert Lewandowski, has been broken,” we read.
Paweł Fajdek attached several photos to the post with employees of the University of Sport Education. In the comments, most fans congratulated the hammer thrower on his achievement.
