Successful winds, Karol!
We support young athletes – Karol Głąbik has hit under the Etisoft’s wings, a contender of the 4.7 laser class and the ward of the Water Club LOK Garland Gliwice. We wish Karol such successes as Błażek Ożoga’s, Polish champion in kiteboarding, brown medalist of the Kiterace World Championships – and also our ward! Successful winds, boaters!
Water sports are the passion of many of our employees. So we have our Etisoft Kitesurfing Team, we support talented youth. We believe in young talents, hence Karol Głąbik, the ward of Water Club LOK Garland Gliwice, has recently found his way to Etisoft.
Karol’s adventure with water sports began five years ago from the sailing camp on Dzierżno, organized by Garland. Karol swallowed the bug, and when it turned out that during the school year Garland ran a school, Karol became involved with the club for good.
On the podium in the Etisoft’s colours
As a member of the sailing section, he started from the lowest Optimist class. This year in Etisoft’s colours he is racing in the 4.7 Laser class. The first starts with our logo resulted in silver medal in the regatta for the Nysa Cup. On the other hand, in the regatta for the Puck Cup, in which the national top players took part, Karol placed mid-stakes. – Karol has been training sailing for three years and is evolving rapidly. Due to his physical conditions, he changed his racing class from Optimist to the 4.7 Laser class boat this season, which in addition to sailing skills also requires good physical preparation. For Karol this season, the main start will be at the National Youth Olympics, which will take place in August at the Goczałkowice Lake (Polish Junior Championships). Karol is preparing for these regatta by training and competing in the Polish Cup regattas all around the country, along with Garland Gliwice Sailing Team – says Kamil Stęplowski, Karol’s coach.
Top marks sailor
Despite the fact that sports passion means abandoning free weekends and additional trips to a several-day regattas, Karol, a pupil of Junior High School No. 3, will finish this school year with a 5.0 GPA.
An attitude worthy of an athlete! We also keep our fingers crossed for successes in sport competition.
