Former German cyclist Tony Martin, retired in 2021 with 4 world time trial titles and 5 stage wins in the Tour de France, will auction the Olympic silver medal he won at London 2012 to help victims of the Ukraine war.
Tony Martin (Cottbus, 36 years old), has indicated in the Bild newspaper that the money raised will go to help the victims of the war in Ukraine.
“If I can tell my grandchildren that I helped people with this medal, it will mean a lot more to me. No one can take my memories away from me”, commented the former German champion.
The cyclist who retired from the 2021 season with the Jumbo Visma jersey expects the auction of his Olympic medal to raise around 20,000 euros. EFE
