Featured Skater - Team Australia's Muzzarati

Derby Name: Muzzarati

Derby Number: 28

Age: 32

League: Sun State Roller Girls

Position: Blocker

How did you get into derby and how long have you been playing?
I started playing roller derby in 2009.
My Queensland Teachers Union rep and I were having a conversation about sports we played and I mentioned I did artistic skating as a youngster and had also played rugby league and union. She invited me to watch a game and the rest is history.

Highlight of your derby career?
World Cup 2011

What is your personal derby goal?
I'm really happy with what I have achieved in derby so far. Being a part of the 2011 & 2014 Team Australia squads is more than I could have ever dreamed of. If and when I eventually retire, I would love to stay involved in the sport by perhaps coaching or refereeing.

Who is your Derby Idol?
Serelson, she is such an amazing defensive blocker. I'm particularly a fan of her backwards blocking.

What is the best piece of advice you could give and up and coming derby player?
A lot of skaters when they start out often make the comment that they are playing derby to get fit. It really doesn't work that way. You need to get fit to play derby. When I came to this realisation myself and changed my attitude to exercise, it really made a difference to my game.
