    As she announced on social media, a man was to break into her car. The athlete independently apprehended the thief and handed him over to the relevant services. Włodarczyk, who was able to throw a 4-kilogram hammer nearly 83 metres, said that the robber “got for it”. However, it was not without losses.


    “A foreigner broke into my car. I had been able to catch him on my own and turned him in.  Unfortunately, I got a muscle injury. The injury has been diagnosed. Surgery is scheduled for Monday. I thank the Polish Police for their quick intervention. After my career, I would probably try MMA fights because the perpetrator got hurt,” she wrote on Twitter.
