Roller Derby Picture Challenge

Let’s try the roller derby challenge again. As with all things I shall start at the start with day 1.

Day 1 – A picture of you pre derby and 5 random facts about yourself.

This is dated on my facebook as 25th May. I signed up to my team's forum on the 25th. So literally just pre derby.

  • I can play the drums.
  • I love being able to smell stuff, like washing powder and other nicely scented stuff.
  • I’m the eldest of four!
  • I hate aniseed.
  • I enjoy a good walk/run in the rain.

A picture of you and your team mates.

Well technically I am part of two teams. My first team and the one I skate with are The Lincolnshire Bombers.
I’m on their A-Team. Have skated with them for nearly three years and will be enjoying a christmas tipple with them later this evening.

Me and my team matesThis picture is slightly outdated as the roster has changed a bit and we have lost four of the skaters to be replaced by up and coming girls.

The second team is Lincolnshire Rolling Thunder, the Lincoln boy’s team. I’m their bench coach, and training member. We have had an undefeated 2012 season!

I’m the jammer, making sure my blocker has the other jammer.


A picture of the person you’re inspired by the most.

This changes all the time but currently it would be the two gentlemen from this picture. My partner and fellow skater who has skated half the time I have and my brother who is a ridiculously effortless and talented jammer!

Chris is on the left (my partner) and my brother on the right. He played this game three days after a jaw operation.

I struggle to eat before bouts so it’s usually this athletic food for breakfast.
