    Background: More than 3,600 competitors took part in a ski race in southern Poland on February 5. The event known as the "Gwarki" ski race attracted both adults and children and highlighted the growing popularity of "Nordic" or cross-country skiing. The skiers listened to a brass band and warmed themselves by a bonfire before lining up to start the race. Some 800 children entered the one kilometre race including several five-year olds. The first adult past the winning post of the 10 kilometre race were Jerzy Szyda and Jerzy Jankowski who shared top honours. They managed to complete the course despite the foggy weather. The oldest participant of the race was 80-year old Antoni Szymanski.
