#TomasMajewski, Polish Fed VP, two-time Olympic champion in the shot put, who is building track & field in track-crazy Poland. I met Tomas in 2007, I believe, as we were heading to FBK Hengelo. I was wearing a suit. He was in a Grateful Dead t-shirt. Now, Tomas does the suit motif, building the sport. A class act.
