Track Beauty of the Week: Anna Kiełbasińska

Anna Kiełbasińska is this week’s track beauty!

Kiełbasińska is an up and coming Polish sprinter. As a junior, she barged into the 200m dash finals of the 2008 World Junior Championships in front of her home crown in Bydgoszcz. She clocked 23.95s, placing 7th overall. Kiełbasińska improved upon her semifinals finish at the 2007 World Youth Championships.

The Polish sprinter had a fruitful 2011 campaign. In the run-up prior to the Daegu World Championships, Kiełbasińska won the European U23 200m dash gold and the 100m dash bronze.

The Pole originally finished in 3rd and 4th place, respectively, but the 100m/200m champion, Darya Pizhankova, was disqualified after failing a doping test. Kiełbasińska ran a lifetime’s best of 23.23s in the 200m dash final.

She competed in her first ever major international a month later in Daegu. The young Pole failed to progress beyond the heats.

Perhaps it is much too early to predict Olympic success for the fast-rising Kiełbasińska. Nevertheless, she is within the cusp of joining the elite European senior campaigners in 2012, in light of the promising results from the previous year.
