Prior to the start of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup tournament, Wójcik was accused of being the transfigured Italian star Seeker Luciano Volpi. This was disproved by them standing side-by-side at a press conference (QWC).
Other canon notes and references
Since Viktor Krum, born 1976, was the oldest player at the tournament (QWC), Wójcik must have been born after 1976.
Bonawentura (Italian: bonaventura) means "good fortune". Saint Bonaventura was a 13th-century Franciscan monk who is considered a Doctor of the Church (Behind the Name).
Wójcik (also: Wojczik, Wojczyk, Wojszyk) is a common surname in Poland, possibly deriving from wojak (warrior) or wójt (chief officer of a municipality) (Wikipedia).
Is there something to be conjectured about the replacement of Bonawentura Wójcik as Polish Seeker by Wladyslaw Wolfke by the time of the actual tournament? Did Wolfke and Luciano Volpi ever appear anywhere together?
