Leszek Błażyński Polish pronunciation: [ˈlɛʂɛk ˈbwaʐɨj̃skʲi] (5 March 1949 in Ełk, Warmińsko-Mazurskie – 7 August 1992 in Katowice, Śląskie) was a Polish boxer who twice won the bronze medal in the men's flyweight (– 51 kg) division at the Summer Olympics.
He first did so in 1972, when Munich hosted the Games. Four years later in Montreal, he once again captured the bronze, after a loss in the semifinals against eventual winner Leo Randolph of the United States. Błażyński committed suicide in 1992, aged 43. He suffered from depression after the death of his wife. He was buried at the Communal Cemetery in Katowice.
He was survived by his son.
