InfoEdit

Karolína Erbanová attended the same school class as Eva Samková, a snowboardcross Olympic Games winner. In her youth she ran on skis and played ice hockey. She was very fast on skates and when she 13 she was recommended to Petr Novák as a prospect. She joined the NOVIS Team in 2006.[3] She was initially predicted to be a middle-track skater, but came to specialize in sprints.

In 2008–09 she won the team world cup with Martina Sáblíková and Andrea Jirků. At the Junior World Championships tournament in Zakopane, she competed in the 3000 m for allround medal but forgot to change lanes and was disqualified. In the next Junior World Championships in Moscow, she fell during the second 500 m race and lost the chance to win a medal.

As member of NOVIS team, Erbanová had to skate the same events as her team leader, long-track skater Martina Sáblíková. During the 2011–12 season she had a different schedule from her experienced teammate.

During the 2012–13 season she won her first individual Senior World Cup in Harbin at the 1000 m.[4]

On 27 August 2018, she announced her retirement from professional sports at the age of 25, citing "manipulative, degrading and aggressive behavior" of Czech national speed-skating coach Petr Novák.[5]
