Welcome to our Featured Skater section.
This month we have Union Smack for you…

FAVOURITE POSITION: Blocker on the inside line, I gravitate to it so why fight it?

DERBYVERSARY: July 2010 having been double flyered.

MOTTO: Man up!
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
Never regret anything, it all makes you the person you are today.

DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS: My Addams Family sleeve.

LIKES: Chinese, marzipan and fruit loops!!! Fruit Loops!!!!!!!!!!!

DISLIKES: Arrogance, rudeness and poor use of the English language.

INJURIES SUSTAINED: Bruised coccyx, bruised knees and the infamous shin splints!!!

FAVOURITE DERBY MOMENT: Winning most ridiculous fall at my first bout.

HIDDEN TALENT: Mmmm I don’t think I have one.

IDOLS: Audrey Hepburn, Bettie Page and the gorgeous Sir Tom Jones.

DERBY CRUSHES: Hahaha I think everyone knows the answer to that one if not my lips are sealed.
Seriously though, probably Kamikaze Kitten.

FAVOURITE ANNOUNCERS: Twi-sted Mister.

WHY I SKATE: It’s the most awesome sport and it doesn’t actually feel like you’re playing a sport. That and the amazing people I’ve met through playing.
