Katalon downloading Docker installation for every test run in Gitlab

Dear Gurus,

thanks for docker image of katalon,it helped me to execute test case using Gitlab to prove Gitlab works well with katalon,but if you see Gitlab console log below ,for every execution Gitlab downloading katalon image ,because of this test execution time is getting prolonged,whereas actual test case is much less time consuming

Question is can this step be removed ,i mean Gitlab downloading image everytime of docker image?

Here is the contents of .gitlab-ci.yml used in Gitlab



    \- docker 


    \- chmod 755 run_chrome.sh

    \- ./run_chrome.sh

Here is GitLab console log:
