In his speech he stressed that The heroism of mine rescuers is absolutely unique, because they know perfectly well that every rescue operation can end tragically. Morawiecki added that These Polish qualities, namely selflessness and heroism, are worth of the highest respect.

This year’s edition took place on the premises of the Central Mine Rescue Station in Bytom in rebuilt and renovated underground excavations. Fitted with a wide range of installations, the space made it possible to simulate the conditions of underground fire, rock fall and harsh microclimate conditions.

Teams from all Polish coal mining companies, as well as teams from the Czech Republic and Slovakia were invited to participate in the competition.
