KADZIOLA & SZALANKIEWICZ
Together since: 2007 (74)
Michal Kadziola and Jakub Szalankiewicz have twice won age-group
World Championship gold medals. The pair made their senior FIVB
debuts on home sand at the 2006 Stare Jablonki Open, but it was
the following year that they showed their potential by winning gold
at the 2007 U19 World Championships in front of their home fans
in Myslowice. After playing on the FIVB World Tour, they returned
from the 2009 U21 World Championships in Blackpool, England
with another set of gold medals. They competed at the 2011 World
Championships in Rome and in 2012 they were part of the Polish
team that finished third at the CEV European Continental Cup. This
year they came the closest they have come to winning a World Tour
medal when they finished fourth at the Shanghai Grand Slam. Since
their FIVB debuts in 2006, neither player has lined up alongside a
different partner.
