Started skating: January 2012
Favourite skate gear: Rainbow knee pads!
Derby hero: Stef Mainey! (not just because we are from the same small Lancashire town )
Career highlight so far: Setting up Team Metal Legs to assist with players returning to Roller Derby from injury.
Height: 5’4″ off skates
Any injuries? Yup. On my one year anniversary I broke my tib and fib and was in a cast for 3 months. Over the years it stole a whole year of my skating time and gave me three surgeries (and a limp for the rest of my life).
Hobbies/interests outside of roller derby: I run a comedy troupe called ComedySportz so when I’m not skating I’m playing games
One thing most people don’t know about me: One of my many jobs in the past was to knit Doctor Who scarves to order!
What’s the origin of your derby name? My original name was The Edge (I really had nothing better) and Rainbow Smite was suggested to me due to my love of colour So I snatched it (actually I think the original suggestion was Rainbow Sh*te… charming)
