Rosolová's main event is the long jump, but she also competes in heptathlon. Her best are 6.68 m in the long jump (July 2004 in Grosseto) and 5,828 points in the heptathlon (July 2006 in Tábor). Since 2001, she has been a member of AK SSK Vítkovice, an athletic club in Ostrava; her coach is Aleš Duda.[1]

Rosolová took the silver medal in the long jump at the 2003 U17 World Championships in Sherbrooke and won the gold medal in the long jump at the 2004 World Junior Championships in Grosseto. She came 25th in the long jump at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. She also competed in the heptathlon at the 2006 European Championships in Gothenburg but had to pull out because of an ankle injury.

At the 2007 European Indoor Championships in Birmingham, Rosolová matched her Czech indoor long jump record of 6.64 m and came in third, beating Bianca Kappler by one centimetre and winning her first major senior medal. As of March 2007, she was several-time champion of the Czech Republic (one outdoor and three indoor titles in the long jump and one title in the heptathlon). In February 2008 she improved her own indoor national record in pentathlon to 4632 points. In November 2008 she married tennis player Lukáš Rosol. In 2011, they divorced.[1] In 2012, Rosolová started to compete in the 400 m hurdles and in her first season, she almost beat Zuzana Hejnová's national record.

Rosolová won a bronze medal with the Czech 4x400 metres relay at the 2013 European Athletics Indoor Championships.[2]
