I have been practicing ice skating for as long as I can remember, and I started my adventure with sport at the age of 6 with ice hockey training. Added to this was my passion for extreme sports.
Over time, my passion has become something more. Sport was my whole life and at the age of 16 I immigrated to Sweden to fulfil my sporting dreams. While playing hockey there, I was noticed because of my dynamic skating skills. This aroused interest among Red Bull Crashed Ice coaches and riders.
During one of the hockey seasons, my club received an official invitation to participate in the Ice Cross Downhill World Championships as a Polish Representative. Taking advantage of my chance in 2017, making my debut in Marseille, I took 6th place in the World U21 classification, which was just the beginning.
The next season was my first full series of the World Championships.Racing on the tracks built in various places in the world, I was the first Polish rider in the history of this sport who stand on the podium of the World Championships. Taking respectively third and second place in U21 category.
Now I’m traveling all around the world racing best riders in biggest Ice Cross Downhill events.
