When and where did you begin this sport?
She took up the sport at age 20 in Gorzow Wielkopolski, Poland.
Why this sport?
A physiotherapist who took care of her grandmother told Sliwinska about the START Gorzow club in Poland. He also gave her coach Zbigniew Lewkowicz's business card, so she contacted him and began going to training sessions.

Other information
WORLD RECORD BUT NO MEDAL
At the 2019 World Championships in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, she set a world record in the F40 discus throw. However as the event was combined for F40 and F41, she was placed eighth. She improved her previous world record by 4cm. "I cannot believe it. I am very happy that such intentions which we had planned with the coach were achieved. It was the end of the season, so we were not sure if I would manage to throw a world record." (tvp.pl, 12 Nov 2019)
