"Of course we ask for more – more efforts and more medals," Duda told athletes during a meeting at the presidential palace in Warsaw.
Polish athletes at the gathering included Anita Włodarczyk, world record holder in the hammer throw, members of the Polish handball team, swimmer Radosław Kawęcki and mountain biker Maja Włoszczowska.
Duda pointed out that Polish athletes will face many challenges next year, particularly at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Poland itself will host several big sporting events, including the European handball championships and the 2016 FIVB Volleyball World League Finals. (pk)
