Romeo & Julia … uppsss … Julia & Marcin are with us!

My name is Julia Angela Karamovic

I am a 22-year-old sports-involved girl from a small city in Sweden called Borås, but with parents from the Balkans. I had my first referee clinic in May 2016, where I also refereed my first basketball tournament (Basketball Festivalen). Before I developed a passion for basketball, I was a competitive swimmer. However, I substituted the long hours of swimming in the pool for analyzing and enjoying the game of basketball instead. In High School, I finally pursued my passion for becoming a professional referee, and I haven’t looked back. The season 2022-23 was my first season as a second-league women’s and third-league men’s referee in Sweden. This summer was also my first time going to Australia, where I visited my sister playing and had the chance to watch and analyze their way of reffing.

My name is Marcin Linder. 

I am a 35-year-old Pole, living in Warsaw sinceI returned to Poland 2017. Here I am a referee in the Mazovia district officiation regularly the second female and third male leagues and recently quarter-finals of the Polish championship U17, U13. I have two passions, my work and basketball officiating, and I definitely prefer Euroleague over NAB:)
