Karolina Winkowska Injured Her Leg, Won’t Compete in Upcoming PKRA Event

Slingshot-sponsored Polish rider Karolina Winkowska announced via her Facebook page that she injured her ankle. The announcement was made yesterday, September 12. Karolina did not release any further information about the injury, just that she will not be able to compete in the upcoming freestyle PKRA in Brazil.

On behalf of everyone here at Epikoo I wish Karolina a speedy recovery and may she get back out on the water as soon as possible. It’s never easy when a rider has to sit out due to an injury, doubly so when the injury prevents the rider from taking part in an important competition.

The upcoming PKRA event mentioned above is the Kitesurf Windriders World Cup 2011 that will take kick off tomorrow, the 14th of September at Barra Do Cunhau beach in Brazil, a spot that has exceptional freestyle riding conditions to offer. The event is organized by Dream Factory Sports and sponsored by Volkswagen, the Tourism Ministry, and the Rio Grande Do Norte Government.
