He made his international debut at the 2016 World Indoor Championships where he finished distant fourteenth despite having the third-farthest throw that indoor season. Later that year he achieved his biggest success to date by winning the silver medal in Amsterdam at the 2016 European Championships. His Olympic debut, however, was not as successful as he failed to qualify for the final at the Rio Games a month later.
He achieved 21.97 metres outdoors at the 2018 IAAF Diamond League meeting in Eugene. His personal best indoors is 21.47 metres (Toruń, 2018). In 2018, he set the new Polish record in shot put by achieving 22.08 metres at the Golden Spike Ostrava meeting. In 2019, he beat his previous record by achieving 22.32 metres at a sports meeting in Warsaw, which makes it the best result by a European shot putter in 21st century and moves him to fifth on the European outdoor all-time list.
Haratyk's older brother, Łukasz, was also a shot putter.
