Adam Seroczyński

Adam Dariusz Seroczyński (born March 13, 1974 in Olsztyn) is a Polish flatwater canoer. He is a former European champion and Olympic bronze medallist.

Seroczyński achieved his greatest success as a member of Poland's K4 kayak 1000 m crew. In 1997 he was a double European silver medallist in Plovdiv, Bulgaria (K4 200 m and 1000 m). This was followed by a K4 1000 m European gold medal in Zagreb, Croatia in 1999 and an Olympic bronze medal at the Sydney Olympics.

After the Sydney Olympics he concentrated on the individual (K1) event, winning the Polish 1000 m title in 2001 and 2002. He won a K1 1000 m silver medal for Poland at the 2002 European championships in Szeged, Hungary, and the world championship bronze medal later that summer in Seville.

At the Athens Olympics in 2004 however he was disappointingly eliminated at the semi-final stage of the K-1 1000 m competition. He also competed in the K4 1000 m once again, regaining his place at the last minute at the expense of Paweł Baumann, but this time the Poles had to settle for eighth place in the final.

In 2005, at the age of thirty-one, Seroczyński showed that he was still the quickest Polish kayak racer over 1000 m, winning both national trials. Now competing in the K2 with Tomasz Nowak, he finished seventh at the World Championships in Zagreb.

In 2006 he formed a new K2 partnership with Tomasz Górski and claimed another bronze medal at the World Championships in Szeged (K2 1000 m - time: 3:19.837).

Seroczyński is now a member of the Posnania Poznań club. He is 190 cm (6'3") tall and weighs 85 kg (187 lbs).

In September 2008, following the 2008 Summer Olympics he was tested positive for clenbuterol in a doping test. [ [http://www.sport.pl/inne/1,64998,5664062,Potwierdzono_doping_Seroczynskiego.html Potwierdzono doping Seroczyńskiego] pl icon]
