What I can see from this, the girl in the white is going for the disc, and only the disc, not initiating any contact.

Here is the definition of Initiate Contact:

Any movement towards a legally positioned opponent (either their stationary position, or their expected position based on their established speed and direction), that results in unavoidable non-incidental contact.

That is what appears to happen.

Also, don’t forget rule 12.9:

All players must attempt to avoid contact with other players, and there is no situation where a player may justify initiating contact. “Making a play for the disc” is not a valid excuse for initiating contact with other players.
