I know, the title is incredibly cheesy, but if you’d told me a year ago I’d skate a roller derby bout in front of a crowd I wouldn’t have believed you. I wrote this post a year and four months ago, and shortly after that started skating with the Norfolk Brawds. It’s taken hard work, stress, sweat, tears and a lot of encouragement, but I did it!

The bout I skated in was a mixed opener, where new skaters from around the country can get experience skating in front of a crowd. It was such a good experience and everyone was excited and enthusiastic, and we won! The bout was quite close until we had a few power jams in our favour towards the end.

Here are a few more photos, I think in future I need to get a cooler looking helmet and not wear blue lipstick and a blue gum shield!
