  3. 3. Short information<br />Adam HenrykMałysz  (born 3 December 1977) is a former Polish ski jumper born and still living in the town ofWisła in southern Poland.<br />Małysz was one of the best and most successful ski jumpers in history, winning 4 individual Olympic Games medals, 4 individual World Championships (all-time record), 4 individual World Cup titles (all-time record) with 39 competition wins and 92 podiums in total. Only Finn MattiNykänen won more (46 wins). Małysz is the only ski jumper ever to win the World Cup 3 times in a row. He has also won the most titles in the history of the individual World Championships.<br />
  4. 4. Career<br />Małysz's career began in 1995. For two consecutive seasons, he was moderately successful in Ski Jumping World Cup (7th and 10th in the overall standings respectively). He re-emerged in the 2000/01 season when he won the Four Hills Tournament and the world championship in individual normal hill while finishing second in individual large hill. 2002 saw Małysz claim silver in individual large hill and bronze in individual normal hill at the Salt Lake City Olympic Games. At the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics Małysz took the silver in Normal Hill Individual Event and won another silver in the individual large hill. In 2003, he won both world championships titles and added another Ski Jumping World Cup (his third). Four years later, in 2007, he surprised his competitors with a streak of wins at the end of the season, including the world championship and overtook the young Norwegian Anders Jacobsen in World Cup standings, achieving his fourth victory and equalling MattiNykänen's record of winning the World Cup four times.<br />His success contributed to his enormous popularity not only among ski jumping fans but throughout Poland as well. Most of all, he has won three World Cups in a row, which was an unprecedented achievement. In Poland, there still are thousands of his supporters. Additionally, Małysz is the only five-time winner of the ski jumping event at the Holmenkollen ski festival (1996, 2001, 2003, 2006 and 2007). He earned the Holmenkollen medal in 2001 for his ski jumping victories (shared with BenteSkari and Thomas Alsgaard). On the last competition of the Zakopane weekend (Sunday 23 January 2011), he was injured and taken away from the hill with an ambulance. On the next weekend, after recovery, he was able to start in next World Cup competitions. Małysz publicly announced the end of his career on the 26th of March 2011.<br />
