Krystina burst onto the international water polo scene by scoring all three of Canada’s regulation goals and the shootout winner in the gold medal game versus the USA at the 2003 World Junior Championships in Calgary.  She finished in the top 10 in scoring with 16 goals and was named to the tournament all-star team. She once again made the all-star team two years later at her second world junior championships making her the only player to do this twice.
Krystina made the jump to the senior national team in 2005 as part of the bronze medal winning team at the FINA World Aquatic Championships and hasn’t looked back since.  Now the captain of the Women’s National Team, Krystina lead her team to back to back silver medal performances during the summer of 2009 at the World League Super Final and the FINA World Aquatic Championships earning MVP honours in the later.
When not in the pool, Krystina likes to hang out with loved ones and spends as much time as she can with friends and family. She is currently enrolled at Concorida University as an independent student.
