Karolina's first memory of the Frisbee sport is a family with long hair playing at the World Championship overall in Sweden 1999. She saw the freestyle final.
She started to play, because her sister was playing ultimate. Before she started to play Frisbee, Karolina had tried many other sports, but no one sport that was as fun as Frisbee.
At a tournament she found out that if you put lip-gloss on the disc it became slippery and her coach showed her the nail delay and some moves. Soon she became better than him and just now she is running higher.
