He won three medals at the world championships, including a gold in 1969. Bednarski’s lightning quick agility and technique defeated much bigger and strong competitors. The Soviet athletes copied Bednarski’s successful style of Olympic Lifting and were able to duplicate his success. During the 1967 Pan American Games Bednarski suffered a career threatening elbow injury. He recovered from the injury and the next year set two world records at the national championships.
