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)
