Klaudia Hartmanis was still unknown in the world scene of Freestyle Slalom one year ago, but she made quite an impression during the whole year, thanks to her fresh and energic style which is getting more original and mastered with time, and a good technical list which keeps on growing and getting more complex.
The dedication she puts in her skating makes her a very promising rising star. She’s started to play with the big girls... with success already: She’s currently the World Vice-Champion in Classic Freestyle, and she’s currently ranked in the World Top-10 both in Freestyle and in Speed Slalom (6th and 9th).
And last but not least she’s got the particularity to have offered Poland its very first world medal ever...!
Not bad for a Polish teenager who was only World #61 twelve months ago!
