Team profile

Jastrz?bski W?giel sports club was founded in 1962 under the name Górnik Jas-Mos. For many years the side performed alongside the multi sport Club GKS Jastrz?bie, but since 1990 they split to become independent.

The side have been involved in the Polish league since 1980d, first in the II Ligue,  and then in the Polish Extra league . In their first year in the top league  GKS Jastrz?bie took fourth place before taking bronze a year later.

However their biggest success has come in the last ten years. In 2004, under the direction of coach Igor Prielo?ny, Jastrz?bski W?giel won the Polish championship before following it up with a Polish Cup win in 2010 under Italian coach Roberto Santilli.

The club has also had relative success in Europe since 1991. They regularly compete in the Champions League and reached their first final four this year.

Named player of the century by the FIVB in 2000, his extensive career saw him seal the silver medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, two World Championships in 1990 and 1994, two European Championships in 1989 and 1995, the 1995 World Cup, the 1993 World Grand Champions Cup and five World League gold medals in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1994 and 2000.
