Early in his career, Kolasiński had a brief partnership with Agnieszka Domańska. In 1991, coaches paired him with Sylwia Nowak, with whom he competed for the rest of his career. They won silver at the 1993 World Junior Championships and then gold in 1994. As seniors, Nowak / Kolasiński won gold medals at the Nebelhorn Trophy, Finlandia Trophy, and Karl Schäfer Memorial and bronze medals at two Grand Prix competitions, Skate Canada International and Cup of Russia. They placed as high as 9th at the World Championships and competed at two Olympics, in 1998 and 2002.
Nowak / Kolasiński retired from competitive skating after the 2002–2003 season. They occasionally skate at special performances. Kolasiński also works as a coach and choreographer. Among his current and former students is Ilona Senderek.
