Therefore, the aim of this paper is to present the profiles of sportspeople from the D?browa Basin who in the period of communism won medals for Poland at the Olympic Games. They are competitors born on the territory of the D?browa Basin or in a given Olympic year representing sports clubs, associations and organizations from the area of the Basin. A basic research method used was the analysis of historical sources with elements of deduction and induction inquiry. Sportspeople of the D?browa Basin, during the period discussed, won medals at the Olympic Games in Tokyo (1964), Mexico (1968), Munich (1972) and Montreal (1976).
